  • Really interesting museum. Cool exhibits, and learning about the race and the boats was fun even for my family who weren't terribly interested. Free entrance, and it takes about 30-60 minutes. They have a temp exhibit with a lot of short 3-5 minutes clips of things like ice, racing dangers, ecosystems, etc. Really nice to stop and see if you're in the area.
  • Really good and well worth a visit. Plenty of interesting info in multiple languages (english version well written) Combination of media was good. Some of the other museums in Alicante could take a few lessons from this display.
