The main exposition is called "Seville and Atlantic Sea Voyages". I suggest you go back anytime from October 2012-March 2013 (which we might do, too) when the space will host "Titanic, the Exhibition", in honor of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
When we arrived we decided to go up the tower first, since the sky was threatening rain.

Then we headed indoors to the museum part, where we explored the sections dedicated to Navigators, Navigation, Life on Board, and finally, Historical View of Seville. We were impressed by the technical quality of the presentations - and all of them were definitely done with children in mind, as they were interactive, interesting, and entertaining - most of the stories told on the screens propelled above the impressive "sea of lights" were done in cartoon format. Manuela loved it!

|You could choose between Spanish or English for each of the presentations, and to turn this one on, you had to swing the hourglass around - fun for the kids!|

Our planet is covered by seas and oceans in two-thirds. Navigation has served as bridge and road between cultures, making our world better known and connected.
Sevilla symbolizes like no other place, this process of turning the oceans into paths for mankind. The reunion between two continental land masses was provoked from Seville and great geographical discoveries were promoted. The world was circumnavigated first and the routes between three continents were organized.
