Columbus’ replica ships sail up Tennessee River into Knoxville


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Replicas of Christopher Columbus’ historic ships, the Nina and the Pinta, have made their way to downtown.

Earlier this month the ships made a stop in Lenoir City. The replicas arrived at Calhoun’s on The River on Monday afternoon and will be open to the public Tuesday at 9 a.m.

Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced “sailing museum.” While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.

Calhoun’s On The River is located at 400 Neyland Drive.

Tickets start at $6. Children age 4 and under are free. The boats will be on display until Sept. 30.
