Fodor's Review

Porto Santo's biggest cultural draw, this museum is located in the former home of Christopher Columbus. Inside, lithographs illustrate the life of Columbus. Copies of 15 portraits of the discoverer made between the 16th and 20th century prove there was little agreement on what he looked like. You can also see the restored kitchen and bedroom, maps of Colombus's journeys, and treasures from a Dutch boat that sank off Porto Santo in 1724.
