If the United States history spurs your imagination, then you’ll definitely want to add the Maritime Museum of San Diego to your must-visit list. Located in the San Diego Bay, the Maritime Museum of San Diego sustains one of the largest collections of notable sea vessels and ships in the United States. You’ll see sailing ships, steam-powered boats, submarines and more. The centerpiece of the museum’s collection is the famous 1863 Star of India, whose storied history includes collisions, mutinies, cyclones, and more than a quarter century hauling immigrants from England and Ireland to New Zealand to begin new lives.
The Museum’s latest addition to their fleet is the San Salvador. The ship is a full sized, fully functional and historically accurate replica of Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s 1542 flagship. The new San Salvador will function much more than just a static museum display. Home-ported in San Diego, she will also sail along the coast of California, visiting its cities and towns as a floating education platform for California’s school children. Public Transit bus route 923, 992/Green trolley line. See coupon offer
