Great chance to get a feel of what it is like to take part in this challenging round the world yacht race.The views from the first floor terrace are fabulous, especially looking towards the castle.

Imagine how it feels to take part in the toughest and longest race in the world. You can get a glimpse of the challenges that face competitors in the Volvo Ocean Race by visiting the Alicante museum.

In October 2017, Alicante had the honour for the fourth time of being the starting point of the prestigious round the world Volvo Ocean Race. The race takes nine months to complete with sailors battling to be the fastest around the world, facing high seas, fierce winds and the most challenging conditions.

Through the high-tech 3D simulators and interactive touch-screen panels, visitors can find out about the history of the race, what life is like on board, marine life and ecosystems, plus the competitors.

The museum is based at the race's state-of-the-art headquarters in Alicante marina. During your visit you can see the celebrations for the race's 40th anniversary and get a close view of the NASA-inspired race control. 

The museum aims to attract andlubbers and sailing enthusiasts alike, with its displays about life at sea, sailing and sports.

The shop and the café on the first floor leads to a large terrace, with views of Alicante city, marina and the Mediterranean.
