Well arranged museum. I particularly liked the maps and charts showing the various voyages of Columbus and the explanation of why he visited the Canaries on the way.

always wondered how Christopher Columbus partnered with the canary islands. This museum will tell you. Great information about Columbus and some old maps to keep you really interested

Not expensive to get in. A mixture of the voyages of discovery and ancient artefacts as well as paintings. All well done with good explanations in various languages.

Nothing exciting in this museum. Rather empty and dark. Best part was the ceilings in the casa.very few other visitors apart from a noisy school party.can't recommend a visit apart from a few interesting maps showing the voyage of Christopher Columbus
