  • This museum was remodeled completely in the year 2014, by the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the heroic defense of the port of Veracruz, unfortunately archaeological windows that were, were eliminated, which erases the historical vestiges of the city walled of the port of Veracruz, therefore part of the story only in the memories of those who knew him before 2014, but the building itself has a rich history, since it was bombed by the Americans in 1914, to be the scene of heroic resistance before the invasion. Thinking of the new generations, this museum is a good choice for the milenians, offers interactive and multimedia rooms, also a great advantage during the heat, is that this air conditioned, has a large central courtyard and. Basically the Museum takes you through a tour of the role of the Navy Marine in history since pre-Hispanic times, the conquest of Mexico and to the Porfiriato, you will find parts and pictures that will call the Mexican naval history as data, the Secretary of Navy Navy of Mexico, in a statement, invites the public in general that you attend to the cultural "night of Museum" program that is usually the last Saturday of the month.

  • Very well orginze, intensive and has good touch screens for information. Explaines the history of: Hispanic, Spanish, French and mexican navel history. All the wars that Mexico has encountered. Great shop models if you are a model buff. Also the children loved them.
  • Really enjoyed this museum. It's free on Wednesday. Good interactive exhibits for kids. Mostly in Spanish
  • Lots of cool guns and large ship models and a little bit of everything else. Larger than we thought it would be. Took us 3 hours to see everything.
  • I was lucky enough to pick a Wednesday to visit this museum and that meant that entry was free -- best price of all! Huge number of exhibits and some impressive life-size dioramas brought to life some of the action that the Port of Veracruz has seen in its history. My 12 year old son had a lovely day, with the helicopters being the highlight of his visit The one thing that stood out admirably was the cleanliness and order of EVERYTHING within; Clearly the Naval influence there. Everything was notably "shipshape and Bristol fashion" as we Brits say!
  • Nice place, good info, good replicas and some originals
