Casa Colón in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The Columbus House

Gran Canaria

The Americas and the Canary Islands

This centre is housed in the former Governor's House, a building that dates back more than five centuries.

The Columbus House was established to study, research and disseminate the history of the Canary Islands and their relationship with the Americas. The museum is divided into five thematic areas. The first contains various information panels showing the settlement of the New World, and the cultures and peoples of Pre-Columbian America. The section entitled "Columbus and his Voyages" recreates the explorer's expeditions, while an exhibit in another room examines Columbus’ time in the Canary Islands. The Columbus House also has a collection of paintings from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
