Despite all the flyers saying the museum is open every day this only applies in summer. It is closed on a Monday all other times. Note that summer starts for this museum late June

Nice museum to explore what happens during the race. Go on board of a ship. See the film. Good for 1 hour of your time.

Went here with my 11 year old son and Mother and found it very interesting. Great video to watch which charts the history of the race and has lots of personal touches. Lots of interactive things to do. Great way to spend about 40mins.

Great museum with a very informative film (which is in English with Spainish subtitles). Also cool to see the live tracking of the round the world race.

Although my wife & I are not sailors, it was difficult not to find the whole exhibition with the interactive displays quite absorbing. The video presentation with the experiences of many of the sailors who had participated in the races was fascinating & quite moving....More

Very interesting and well worth a visit if you are in Alicante, particularly as it is free. Unfortunately, like most such attractions, the merchandise in its shop is horrifically expensive!
