The Museum’s latest addition to their fleet is the San Salvador. The ship is a full-sized, fully functional and historically accurate replica of Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s 1542 flagship. The new San Salvador will function much more than just a static museum display. Residing in San Diego, she will also sail along the coast of California, visiting cities and towns as a floating education platform for California’s school children.
