We went to the stars show in August and loved it. Really funny. Don´t go expecting an expensive show, which you won´t if you take into account how cheap it is. But let the children´s laughter and the magical atmosphere take you back to your own childhood.

We had a blast here. Reconstructions of the boat Columbus sailed to the new world. You can clamber all over them, and visit reconstructions of the native villages where he landed.

I read a review of a couple of years ago and it seems the situation has not changed. This is a place which has not been improved so much to be really interesting. There is a great difference between the entrance with the small museum and the auditorium and the area where the ships are. The entrance and the museum... More

Recommended for the whole family. Interesting museum, and the replicas of the ships were excellent! Well presented displays, excellent facilities and good refreshment area. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The Muelle or wharf is an interesting place to visit and we were able to go onto two of the three caravels moored there. I am amazed at how such tiny ships changed the course of world history. Surrounding the ships are replica Taino huts, not brilliantly done and a good imagination will enhance your experience.

We came here with our two children (2 years and 7 months) and had a great time. The reconstructions of the ships and the were brilliant and our eldest daughter loved exploring them. We don't speak any Spanish so the only improvement I could suggest is getting more of the information boards in English/other languages as it was really fascinating... More

Superb review of the historic voyages of Columbus. Inside the building there is a museum showing many artefacts of the time and showing how the replicas of the 3 ships were built to the exact measurement and in the same manner of that time. An interesting slide show can be seen in the theatre, beautifully illustrated. Outside there is a... More

Here are recently built copies of Sta Margharita, La Nina and La Pinta. All ships associated with Colombus and his voyages. It is surprising how small they are - I would not like to travel the Atlantic in one. OK, they are recently built, but they really do look like the originals!

This place could have been allot more than it was. It was nice getting an idea of just how big Columbus' boats were....it allowed me to appreciate just a little more what kind of hardship came with his adventures. The boats are replicas that sit in a little man made enclosure of water. As you walk thru the ships you... More
