Christopher Columbus’ Ships the Niña and Pinta Sail Detroit!
- posted in: Blog
Explorer Christopher Columbus sailed the seas and discovered the New World in 1492. His famous ships the Niña and Pinta allowed him to embark on his long voyage and you can get a chance to jump back in time to see what it was like!
Get a feel for what it was like to travel in the 15th century this weekend! The most historically accurate replicas of Columbus’ two ships will be sailing the Great Lakes and they’re making a stop in Wyandotte from Thursday, August 10 to Sunday, August 13. Make your way to our Wyandotte Dock in Bishop Park where you can do some exploring of your own on board these giant floating museums.
Both ships, operated by the Columbus Foundation, are open to the general public from 9am to 6pm. It is not often that the Niña and Pinta come around our parts of town. The ships last visit to Michigan was in 2014, so don’t miss out on this exciting and educational opportunity! Bring out your friends, family, kids, and of course the explorer in you!
