The faux Nina, which was used in the film 1492 starring Gerard Depardieu, was built completely by hand without the use of power tools in 1988. Archaeology Magazine called it the "most historically correct Columbus replica ever built."
The ship's been touring the country since 1992 as a sailing museum. While in Memphis, the Nina will be open to the general public for self-guided tour every day of the week.
