The Ocean Race Museum

 

In the heart of Alicante, next to Paseo Volado in the harbour of Alicante, The Ocean Race Museum is a modern exhibition venue where visitors can enjoy an interactive installation that gives them a close-up look at the world of the sea, learning about the most intrepid sailors and experiencing the hidden delights of the Ocean. Take a trip through the history of the regatta and the marine world in this state-of-the-art museum. In fact, this is the only museum in the world specialising in the most demanding challenge to sailors of our time. The regatta considered the “Everest of Sailing”, The Ocean Race.
