You probably remember reading about Christopher Columbus and the ships used to discover America in history class. Now, you can check out two of the three in Marietta.
Replicas of the Nina and the Pinta made their way into Marietta Thursday.
Crowds gathered along the river to catch a glimpse of the floating museums.
It's a sight many say, you just don't see every day.
"It's neat! It's something I think school kids ought to get involved in. If it was a nice day I think school kids should get out and see this," Becky Carver, an observer, said.
"When I picked the boys up from school I thought they'd enjoy seeing it, so I decided to bring 'em over here and check it out," Brenda Woomer, an observer, said.
These particular ships are less than two decades old, but they're made to look and perform just like the originals.
The Nina and the Pinta will stay docked in Marietta until Wednesday morning.
They will be open to the public Friday through Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Prices are $7.00 for adults, $6.00 for senior citizens and $5.00 for students. Children under 4 are free.
