  • 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, pre├žo justo e bem interativo
