Directions to Burela Tuna Fishing Boat Museum
The Burela Tuna Fishing Boat Museum (Museo Barco Bonitero Burela), Reina del Carmen is moored at Burela dock, in the north of the province of Lugo. Originally built in 1967 it served its 30 years at sea as a tuna fishing vessel catching sword-fish and hake as well until 1998 when it started its new life as a museum. Inside there is an exhibition of photographs and there are display panels about the bonito (tuna) a local delicacy here on the coasts of Galicia and Asturias. So much so that there is actually a whole festival devoted to the tuna every year in the docks on 5 August. Visitors can also take a stroll around the deck, visit the engine room,the bridge and wine cellar, hold a hook or net in their hands, breathe in the ship's salty aroma or listen to the waves lap against the hull. Their website also has a Virtual Tour of the boat.
The boat is open every day from June to September from 11.00 to 14.00 and 16.30 to 21.30. The rest of the year its open only from Monday to Friday from 10.00 to 14.00.
It costs €2 for adults but for children under 12/schools its free.
