The Voyage of 1492
The Voyage of 1492: An Ongoing Voyage with Columbus is a navigation through various documents and images. The exhibit provides two levels of use: one is a guided tour which will be represented by the image of a ship.
Just as the first Europeans explored the world, you will be guided through various ports of the Mediterranean and the Americas. When you finish exploring the documents and images to be found at a particular destination you will sail on to the next by area by selecting either the image of the ship or the highlighted destination. These items will always be found at the bottom of each document.
