Not the house Which is where i actually wanted to go!! Hotel assured me this was the place ….

Oh well! The expo is ok but there are no other languages except Spanish.. not one word in any “tourist” language…
Everything is a replica .. a lot of the pictures have been blow up so large that the quality is terrible and hard to make out .
It’s grand though to walk around, you can look at stuff and get out of the heat.. but I wanted to go to his house not this museum .. unfortunately time was against me.

The chap at the pay desk was very helpful..

This is a very cool museum. Valladolid, Spain, is actually the death place of Columbus and there's a lot of cool stuff inside. The thing I really liked about it is that it's pretty cheap to get in and it doesn't take too long to look around (probably an hour or less) so it's easy to squeeze it in when you want to see a lot in a short time period. Definitely worth your visit.

This museum looks like it is very well put together but sure how would we know, there is not even a pamphlet in English- have never really come by this problem before, is English not the language agreed on in the EU??

This is a great museum in Valladolid. Staff at the reception is very nice, one of the guys explained to me the history of this museum. It is a great place to get to know the life and enterprises of Christopher Columbus and his four trips to America. I really like the fact that it shows an objective perspective of Columbus, neither the black legend, nor the idealistic view of the Conquistador.

This is a really nicely curated collection with some fascinating documents and maps but we struggled to extract as much from the visit as we would have liked because the information is only available in Spanish. But even with a limited vocabulary (and google translate) we managed to learn a lot and were left wanting more.

This is a good visit even if you don't speak much Spanish.

I expected much less and the place was full with intriguing content exhibited in a modern, exciting and well planned manner.
Not much information in English though, I was very lucky to have a local friend with me

Unique museum in the old home of Christopher Columbus. Only down fall is that all info and video is in Spanish, and seeing as my Spanish is limited, most of it was difficult to understand completely. Beautiful space and great collection though.

I visited this museum in mid-June 2015 and found it to be really excellent. It is spread over 4 floors, whereby (very roughly) each floor covers one of the 4 voyages undertaken by Christopher Columbus. This approach is very successful, in that the visitor can focus with clarity on each voyage in turn. The museum offers static and multi-media displays which explain the life of Columbus and the background to each voyage. The only drawback is that you really need to have a good working knowledge of Spanish in order to get the best out of the exhibits. Overall, this is a most interesting, colourful, and well organised museum which is definitely worth a visit. The entrance fee is a mere 2 euros each, and only one euro (70p) for students and older people. That is incredibly good value for money!! Highly recommended, especially if you have a good knowledge of Spanish.

Despite all this being in Spanish I thought this was an excellent museum which really told the story. We spent a couple of hours here and were impressed.
