Colon Museum House

Casa Museo de Colon (Calle Colón 1, Las Palmas) — the Casa de Colón (Christopher Columbus’ Museum) is a delight for the visitor. Its colonial-style architecture, its wooden colonnades and paneling, its stonework patios and façades are the perfect background for recreating the personality of this city.

Its facilities make reference to the connection between the Canary Islands and the Americas. The annexation of the Canaries to the Crown of Castile, Christopher Columbus’ landfall on Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, pre-Columbian Latin America, and the history of naval cartography are some examples of the contents shown throughout 13 permanent exhibition halls, a library and a specialized study center. Admission: €4 (adult), €4 (seniors, students ages 18-23), free for those under 18 years. Free entry for all on Sundays. Hours: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (Monday-Saturday), 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (Sundays & holidays). See its website for more info: www.casadecolon.com
