A very interesting museum about the journeys of Christopher Columbus. I didn't know he thought he was going to India, not America! Dont miss the two large Macaws in the central courtyard, I thought they were toys until one moved! The staff are very helpful

Though not that much Columbus-related, it's worth a visit if you are in the area. It's mainly a sea travels history museum. The building is very pretty and the rooms are nicely decorated.
