Its most prominent exhibits are replicas of Christopher Columbus's boats for his first voyage to the Americas, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa María.

The replica caravels were built between 1990 and 1992, put through shakedown voyages[1] and then, in 1992, sailed the route of Columbus's voyage. 20140406-121920 p.m..jpg
