“Lots of information”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

A lovely little house with lots of well illustrated panels about the history of the island. It's not expensive to enter and you can sit in the little garden too. If you go to Porto Santoyou should leave half an hour at least for this little gem... whether or not christopher Colunmbus ever lived here!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Yes it was cheap - but you can see why. Very little of the man himself - which could be so easily rectified. What a shame - missed opportunity.

“Columbus Museum !”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

A big build up, but, mostly just a series of boards with pictures. There are some small token treasures, and to be honest it's very small, like the island and they do try hard.
It costs 2 euros to get in, but that's understandable given the content. If you're in town, you may as well go, there is not a great deal to do or much to see, just prepare to be underwhelmed...
Oh and beware Mondays, it's not open.
