Columbus Santa Maria Mission Statement
The Santa Maria’s threefold mission is to serve these purposes:

  1. The Santa Maria commemorates and interprets the first European voyage to America by Christopher Columbus, the sailing and operation of the traditional square-rigged sailing vessels, which made the voyage, and the culture and life of the crew abroad these vessels.
  2. The Santa Maria is a educational museum to be used to teach the importance and impact of the first voyage and the technology of the square-rigged ship through educational programs and experiences which are offered to school children, families, and adults.
  3. The Santa Maria serves as the flagship of Columbus, Ohio, the largest city in the world named for Christopher Columbus, and encourages visitation to the riverfront and other central Ohio destinations.
Santa Maria’s missions are to be accomplished through the exhibition and operation of the ship, and by using the ship as the focal point for special programs and events.
