One the one hand, the other reviewers are right that you won't learn too much here and that it won't blow your mind. On the other hand, Tordesillas is tiny (and charming nevertheless) and, as a historian, I'm just happy that the treaty houses are...More

Unfortunately audioguide only in spanish and visual explanations only spanish portuguese and english. The treaty through which spaniards and portuguese devided the world to be discovered and taken possession of in 1494 is nicely illustrated.

I learnt a few things here which I should have remembered from school. Interesting little museum as stated by other writers. Town worth a visit, maybe a overnight stay as its a nice area. Prices in town seemed OK as its a bit tourist.

This is worth a visit as it helps you understand the history of how new world was apportioned, with before and after - which even my teenage kids found interesting!

Although there are a few old pieces, it isn't so much a museum as a centre explaining the background to the treaty (the state of geographical knowledge at the time, ships' capabilities…), with models of Columbus's ships, contemporary books on navigation, navigational instruments, copies of...More
