According to all the reviews here I expected to see a lot of CC, but in reality there were only 2 books where it displayed handwritten notes of him - and even those 2 books were only facsimiles. There were 3 flags that were waived...More
The museum is housed in an old building and includes interesting exhibition of Christopher Columbus’ voyages as well as some paintings and two friendly parrots ;-) The staff are really friendly, always ready to answer questions and offer advice. The museum is well laid out...More
We strolled in with our kids. My 4 year old usually considers museums a race to the finish. I have him 15m tops. I was surprised how much he enjoyed looking at the replicas of the ships, the nautical instruments, maps, indigenous artifacts, and even...More
My second visit to Casa de Colom and I loved them both. Lovely to learn more on how America was discovered, how people lived under sails few centuries ago and how the world was divided between Spain and Portugal (you can see Treaty of Tordesillas!)....More
The "Casa de Colon" Museum is set in a splendid old house in the historic Vegueta neighborhood of Las Palmas. In addition to Columbus' life and travel, there is a collection of old maps (of course copies) and an art gallery. This museum must not...More
It's good attraction to stop by and spend some time. Trips made by Columbus are well described and mapped. Here you have good idea how he traveled and how many days he actually spend travelling.
Worth a visit!

I do not know about any hotels in the old town of Las Palmas and I do not know about any hotels which allow dogs to stay. There are many nice hotels and apartments on las Canteras beach, which is either an hour walk to the old town/ a 6/7 minute bus ride or a Euro 6 taxi ride.I traveled to the island with 2 friends and we visited much of the northern part by bus (a very cheap and punctual service) and only found the need for a car on the day we visited the Caldera (in the centre of the island) as that would have necessitated changing buses and waiting around.

When you come out of the cruise terminal, beyond security keep walking straight ahead (there is an entrance of the muelle shopping centre on the right) and when the road goes round to the right there is a taxi rank just there, 5 mins walk from the cruise ships. Taxis are metered and cost about €8 and take about 10 mins. (You could walk but it's probably 4 miles). The Casa Colon is right in the heart of old Las Palmas (Vegueta) so you can wander from there to the cathedral (2 mins) and then the other area that you may be interested in is Triana, just very slightly to the north of Vegueta. it's the main commercial area but the main street (calle Triana) is lined with elegant buildings and it's easy to pick up a taxi at the end of that street in Parque san Telmo to head back to the cruise terminal
