  • It is a complete Museum, the only drawback is that it has too much text, which at the halfway point of the first floor can get tiring reading. The audio has not can be heard well. In addition, increased ventilation, is missing because the atmosphere is internally very stifling. The second floor is best described, as even interactive part is located. The cost of entry is 16000, accessible.

  • 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
