If you are a history nut, expect to spend2-3 hrs in this fantastic museum. Colombo’s probably never stayed in this house, regardless it’s an excellent example of the stately homes of the time.this is s don’t miss stop.

Christopher Columbus may have stayed here… or maybe not. At any rate, this is an amazingly preserved historical building housing a good-sized museum. On our visit, we didn’t have the time to tour the entire museum but, had a look around the courtyard and gift...More

A smallish museum dedicated to Christopher Colombus (and some parts about Gran Canarian life during his era). It has some cool ship models, artifacts used for sailing, models of old Las Palmas villages, paintings of importance, pre-Colombian American artifacts and probably the highlight are two...More

Impressive building for one of the more important citizens of Las Palmas. We liked the way the trips were explained and the confusion between India and America.

This is a little gem of a building situated in the beautiful old town with cobbled streets. The entrance and staircase is grand but not a lot else to see inside on the day we visited. It looked like a working place

Rather disappointed as ‘museum’ largely descriptions, maps and some reproduction artefacts of Columbus’ voyages. Gallery of Gran Canary prints from the 1830s. The architecture is attractive but not as Columbus would have known it, with buildings knocked together and beautiful stone doors bought from elsewhere...More

The connection with Columbus is quite tenuous but the museum makes the most of it. The material about the history and significance of the Canary Islands is particularly good. The art is of variable quality. Very nice setting.

The Casa de Colon is a really attractive building with beautiful ornate doorways and balconies and lovely carved wooden ceilings, It is said that Columbus stayed there in 1492 whilst one of his ships was being repaired well worth a visit.
