  • Even less English here than the historical museum. They have an app but it is hopeless and doesn't have anywhere near as much detail as the Spanish displays. Really bummed because there was some cool ...  more »

  • This is excellent to get a taste of the battles that took place and how Columbia came to be. It is has great displays of ships, old submerines, ocean going displays with depths and much more. Hire the...  more »

  • If you want to know more about the naval history of Cartagena and like naval museums it's a good place to go. Information is all in Spanish, and presented in dense formats. If you are a sensitive to font use, some of them can be quite hard to use. It's generally a bit random, but enjoyed the couple of airconditioned hours there.
  • Excellent museum even if you do not read Spanish. Lots of history to be learned here. Check out the dog head on the second floor.
  • Good museum for the price. I recommend to know a little bit more of the history of piracy in Cartagena.
  • Cool, but wish it was also in english.
  • Bonito museo, preço justo e bem interativo
