Naval Museum of the Caribbean, Cartagena
(3.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Find out whether there were really any pirates of the Caribbean at Naval Museum of the Caribbean. Inaugurated 500 years to the day after Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas, the maritime history museum houses some fantastic recreations of the seafaring vessels that have braved the Caribbean over the centuries. Non-Spanish speakers beware: you won't find any English information, or an English audioguide, at the museum. You'll also feel the heat, as the museum lacks air conditioning.
