Do not expect any domestic goodies, this is just a nice house/museum with journal extracts and journey profiles of Christopher Columbus. There are also some interesting models of Gran Canaria and South American artifacts.

This museum made the distances Christopher Columbus travelled with ships which were quite small and only 3 of them really more unimaginable. His voyages of discovery were for the time amazing. I also discovered why most of South and Central American speak Spanish and only Brazil speak Portugese. If you don't know look it up. The museum has many language... More

The building is beautiful and very well preserved. the garden inside is cosy. There are a couple of Ara parrots which make it even more exotic. However, maybe due to scarcity of funds, there is very little to see inside. The souvenir shop has very nice items.

The museum is ok, there are maps and interactive videos of Columbus and his travels. It gives a decent insight into history and the Canary Islands history. There are also two live parrots which stroll around the inner courtyard, surreal.

The museum is located in an interesting part of town, an area worth walking around, near the cathedral. I am easily bored in museums but this is not too large yet left a strong impression of the bravery and character shown by the early naval explorers. The ships were, from memory, about 21 metres long and carried a crew of... More

This lovely old building in the cities historic area provides an excellent insight into the many voyages of Christopher Columbus as well as housing a great collection of Spanish paintings. The museum building has been carefully restored, the wooden ceilings are wonderful examples of craftsmanship.. One of the galleries has a 3d model of Gran Canaria. Take a walk around... More

This is a very interesting historical building for anyone interested in Christopher Columbus and his voyages to the New World. The displays were well constructed and provided information to our young children which kept them interested. It is set in an architecturally very interesting part of the city as well. If you have young children then they may be interested... More

The stones and architecture make the building unique. They were having a private party but allowed us in to use the restrooms. We toured the art gallery upstairs. One can get here independently without a tour.

I really enjoyed this building. There are attractive courtyards and old wooden ceilings. The exhibits mainly relate to Columbus and his voyages and you get a good feel for the close relationship between the Canary Islands and South and Central America. For bird lovers there are two beautiful Macaws (?) wandering the courtyards. The entry price was very reasonable -... More
