This was recommended to us by a holiday rep, and we were not disappointed. Full of information about Christopher Columbus, and make sure you visit the lower floor. Full Of Mayan statues which I was fascinated by. Only €4 for entrance as well so definitely worth your time and money.

A low key but worthwhile local Museum based around the voyage of Christopher Columbus. A pleasant and cheap trip to enjoy the colourful colonial building that was his Island residence and learn about the Island of Gran Canaria

The Columbus museum is housed in this beautiful building as CC "probably" stayed there when he stopped on the Canaries to repair and re-provision his ships on the way to discovering America in 1492. That's all you are told about the house, which is a shame. The presentations about the voyages are very good however. So is the information on... More

It's only €4 for entry but it will absorb your for a good hour . Lots of interesting titbits of info and old maps (which I love). The basement (crypt) artefacts from far afield are really good so don't miss them. I did like the recreation of Columbus's bedroom on the Nina. The house occupants are now two Macaws who... More

Excellent museum located in the Vegueta beside the Cathedral St Ana. Entry costs €4 & is well worth every cent. Really well laid out with something for everyone - mixture of models, exploration history, science, navigation & astronomy and of course loot from the Americas. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly & each room has information translated into several languages.
