Lake Charles LA welcomes
The Columbus Replica Ships
When learning about history, most of us remember hearing that phrase we learned in School — “Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue in 1492”
The Columbus Replica Ships the ‘Pinta and the ‘Nina’ are in Lake Charles and the ships will be docked at the Civic Center for tours beginning April 20-May 8 at the Lake Charles Seawall
The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.”
Both the Nina and Pinta ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children. What a terrific educational opportunity for Southwest Louisiana teachers and organizations who can schedule guided tours with a crew member! There is an $8 admission for adults and $6 Admission for students.
The ships arrived in Lake Charles last night and this morning could be spotted out in the lake. What an awesome sight along the lakefront!
