Madison Welcomes ‘Pinta’, replica Christopher Columbus Ship

May 26, 2023 @ 9:00 am - May 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

$6 – $8

On Friday, May 26, the “Pinta”, a Replica of a Portuguese Caravel used by Christopher Columbus and many early explorers will open as a “floating museum” in Madison for dockside educational tours.    

The ship will be docked at Madison Lighthouse Restaurant & Bar, on Vaughn Dr, in Madison, until her departure on May 30.

In 2005, the “Pinta” was Launched in Brazil after three years of construction. The ship was built by eighth Generation Portuguese Shipwrights using the same methods and hand tools that were used to build the original in the 15th century. The “Pinta” was the first ship to sight land on the famous voyage of discovery on October 12, 1492.

The general public is invited to step back in time and explore the “Pinta” for self-guided tours from May 26 to May 29  from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. No reservations are necessary. Tickets are purchased at the ship and prices are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors/military (65+), and $6 for children (ages 5 to 16). Children four and under are free.
