Discover Columbus' Ships

Date: Friday, November 10, 2017 to Sunday, November 19, 2017
Time: 9:00am to 6:00pm
Location: Riverfront Drive 4831 Riverfront Drive Fort Smith, AR

Welcome to The Columbus Foundation and our two Columbus replica ships - our original Niña, the most historically accurate replica of a Columbus Ship ever built, and our newer Pinta.

Both The Niña and Pinta will be touring together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’, for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel’, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers to discover the world.

The Columbus Foundation receives no funds from government agencies or private foundations.

We are supported entirely by the fees paid to tour the ships. 

Tour Details:

  • You can book a tour anytime from 9am-6pm on days the ships are in port.
  • Each group has a tour guide assigned to them.
  • Each tour will last an average of 30 minutes, with time split between The Nina and Pinta.
  • Groups of 15 or more receive a group rate of $5 per person.
  • Maximum number of people allowed in a 30 minute time slot is 100.
  • (If your number goes over 100, you will need to book an additional 30-minute time slot.)
  • You will receive a phone confirmation, usually within 24 hours of submitting your tour request.
