Have you ever wondered what it was like to travel across the Atlantic Ocean in 1492?

If you have this weekend you have a chance to check out replicas of the Nina and Pinta ships that Christopher Columbus used to get to North America.

These floating museums can transport you back in time to when travel was much more time consuming. Just think, you won’t have to worry about getting scurvy.

The ships are operated by the The Columbus Foundation, which is a non-profit that educates the public on the ships that Columbus used during his four voyages.

Admission for touring the ships is $8.50 for adults, $7 for seniors over 60, and $6 for children. Children under the age of 5 are free.

The ships will be docked at Bishop Park in Wyandotte from Thursday, August 10 through Sunday, August 13.

Bishop Park is located at Bishop Park 2701 Van Alstyne Street Wyandotte, MI 48192.
