If you are in Las Palmas you MUST go to this wonderfull house and museum. There are so many things to see, and sitting in the yard when you want to rest and absorb what you see, is fabulous.

A must do not miss event. Thursday night is tapas and cana night in the old town. all the bars serve tapas and cana ( small drink) for 2 euros. Bands play in the streets, the atmosphere is like new year's eve for all ages. Wonderful atmosphere.

The museum and the whole historical centre architecture is really beautiful. The exhibition is about the story of Columbus and it is described with old maps. In the courtyard they are two big parrots

The story of Columbus is well described with old maps and a replica of the captains cabin. We missed some material about the experience they had during the stops on the different islands.

It was just ordinary. The position by the lighthouse is good and the bar is set on its own but nothing special. Friendly staff but it felt like it had missed a trick. Watty

Worth the 4 euros for just the house and courtyard, but the exhibition is excellent too. Columbus exploration, maps and artefacts from the new world.

The main bonus is that nearly all of the information was in English and Spanish so we were really able to learn something about Columbus and his voyages.

Any visit to Gran Canaria should include this museum. As the house of Christopher Columbus, it is awsome to walk round it imaging his thoughts before he set off. The lifesize model of the rear end of the Pinto is amazing - how did that cross the Atlantic! It is a small museum but worth the visit.
