We arrived 45 minutes before closing time. Very friendly, helpful reception from the staff. The museum exhibits were not hugely interesting to us but the old house that forms the museum was fascinating and had a really picturesque inner courtyard. 45 mins was good enough for us, we enjoyed our visit.

The exterior of this building and internal courtyard are beautiful housing the Christopher Columbus Museum. A strange eclectic mix of Columbus' ancient documents, modern back-lit maps showing the routes of his voyages, models of his 3 boats, a room furnished like the cabin of a ship. Then there's a completely unrelated art gallery. Adult admission charge €4

Located almost next to the dominant Cathedral de Santa Ana, you'll easily find the charming museum called Casa de Colon - Columbus house. The reference to Christopher Columbus is somewhat 'creative' as I understand it - it is not proven that Mr Columbus stayed at this place in 1492 on his way to America, but the Governor's house is indeed...

Nice old house telling you the life story from some other times. If you want to learn something, here you can find a lot of history. If you want to see something beautifull, here it is. It´s interesting both for the kids and the adults. Was there a few times and allways found something new to discover

Very well presented museum! The exhibits are very interesting and very well explained. It is housed in a beautiful building with an excellent patio, which is the house of two macaw parrots! Among other things, it demonstrates with every detail the journeys of Colombus to the Americas and also has a whole hall demonstrating the exact interior of one of... More

The building is beautifully conserved and is located in the historic district of Vegetal. The house is charming but does not worth the price that you are paying. It is not very interesting, all rooms are a little piece of a museum but nothing regarding Colon.

4€ per adult, children under 18 free. Wonderful museum full of interesting pieces from Christopher Columbus and Gran Canaria. Taks about an hour to get around. My 8 year old found it very interesting indeed, as did we.

We went there as it was suggested on our guide and I must say I did enjoyed it! The staff provided us with a guide in our mother tongue and they were all very friendly, saying thank you when we were leaving. It costed us only €4 per person but the experience is far more than what you pay. I... More
