Columbus' ships to arrive in Biloxi
BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Replicas of two of Christopher Columbus' ships — the Nina and the Pinta — were scheduled to dock Thursday for a three-week stay at the Schooner Pier Complex of the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum in Biloxi.
The ships will remain in Biloxi until Jan. 2.
Robin Krohn David, the museum's executive director, says both ships tour together as a new and enhanced sailing museum to educate the public and school children about Columbus' explorations.
The general public may visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour. Admission charges are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for students ages 5 to 16. Children 4 and under are free.
The ships will be open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until their departure.
