Experience History
Imagine what it must have been like more than 500 years ago to step aboard the Santa Maria. Imagine embarking on a voyage that would forever alter the world in which we live. Imagine using only wind and current for propulsion and a crude compass, the sun and the stars for direction!

Guided, on board tours dramatize the daring and determination it took for these explorers to set out on their mission. Experience the lives they led, interact with replicas of the navigational tools they used, play the games they played to pass the time.

Make your plans now to visit the world's most authentic, museum-quality replica of Christopher Columbus' flagship.
