Founded by Columbus scholar Ruth C. Walper Malvin, this small but interesting museum displays artifacts from the time of the indigenous Arawak Indians, maritime artifacts from the colonial era and more. As San Salvador is held by many to be the site of Columbus's first landing in 1492, many of the exhibits also chronicle the explorer's life. The Columbus Monument, erected by Malvin in 1956, is located nearby. The museum is open only by appointment. Your hotel should be able to arrange a free visit.
