“X” Marks The Spot

In the historic port of Genova lies a treasure that few people know about: The Galata Museo Del Mare. The venue is often overshadowed by the Aquarium, although they can both hold their own in terms of exhibits. The Galata Museo Del Mare allows visitors to explore life at sea and the sea’s impact on the history and future of Genova. Included in the museum is an exhibit on one of Genova’s most famous residents of the past: Christopher Columbus. Over 6,000 original relics from his time period are preserved for public viewing inside. Alongside the untouchables are interactive workstations for the patrons. Who knew such a gem was hidden among Genova’s many treasures? To find out more, visit the museum's website: Galata Museo del Mare
