Look back in time more than 500 years and watch as replicas of the ships Christopher Columbus sailed to the exploration of the New World navigate Lake Michigan and steer toward South Haven.

The most accurate replicas of the Nina and Pinta ever constructed drop anchor in South Haven for a visit to the Michigan Maritime Museum August 31- September 4.

The vessels cruised into Muskegon for a 5-day stay and then cast off to navigate to South Haven harbor. You can go back in time and visit this floating museum.

  • Tickets are $15 for adults with child and senior rates available.
  • Tickets are good for tours of both ships: the Nina and the Pinta.
  • Tours are self-guided but crew are available to answer questions and share stories and spin yarns about their many voyages.

More information is available from The Columbus Foundation and Michigan Maritime Museum.
