We had a good time visiting this place, it is quite educational, especially if you consider the 4 euros ticket you pay to visit all levels. I would say it is a must see when in Las Palmas.

Visited as part of a tour group. We felt as if we had stepped back in time, lots of things to look at, maps & charts, diaries and a good replicated cabin. You realise how hard these voyages must have been.
