Replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships are now on display in Hudson, Wisconsin.

The “Pinta” and the “Niña” replicas of the ships arrived in Hudson at noon Thursday and will be docked at the City Docks of St. Croix River until they leave early Wednesday, July 20.


The “Niña” was built by hand and is considered to be the most historically accurate Columbus replica ever built. The “Pinta” was built in Brazil, and it’s a larger version of the archetypal caravel.

While stationed in Hudson, the ships will be open to the public to tour, starting Friday. It costs $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for students ages 5-16. Kids ages 4 and younger are free.

The ships are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
