February 22, 1964 – The Columbia Sailing Ship Exhibit Opens

“History comes alive below deck.”

On February 22, 1964, the below decks exhibition within the Columbia Sailing Ship opened to the public. The original Disneyland ship, based on the Columbia sailing ship that circumnavigated the globe in 1787, opened in the park on June 14, 1958. The historical displays created in the ship give guests an idea of the living conditions sailors faced in the 18th century, particularly those that joined ships like the Columbia to fill in details of the world map.
