Replica of the Columbus Ships. Large interactive play area for children. Exhibits of local history. Located next to the ship channel entering the port; good for watching large ships entering or exiting the port

“too good to miss”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We spent the end of one day and another couple of hours on the next morning here. They graciously allowed us in on our late day pass from the day before. Sadly the weathering of the Pinta and Santa Maria are ruining the replica ships beyond repair. It is hard to believe no one felt the SM was worth saving with all the $$ in the state. We thoroughly enjoyed all the exhibits- natural and human history were both well done. Our guide on the Pinta was knowledgeable and friendly. We went to view the Nina in the waters by the Marina too. Great stop and well worth the time and money...

“Very interesting museum”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Lots of interesting items to see. A great museum to visit and would visit again. One suggestion, tour guide for the Columbus ship acted like she was bored and just wanted to get the tour done over as quick as she can. And when people asked questions she would just put them off rudely.

“Nothing wrong with it, but it's kinda boring.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I went there and didn't find anything wrong with it, but having been to many other museums this isn't one to write home about.

“glad we went”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

it was a little disorganized but it was very interesting to see the local history. The kids liked the interactive area very much. Crowds were not large, price was reasonable.
