  • This museum inside and out is a must see while in Cartagena. Thanks to the relics from a Spanish galleon on display here it makes a centerpiece for the underwater theme...well done!  more »
  • You should not forget to pass by the Museum during your visit to cartagena. I propose to see the documentary that shows (15 minutes that passed quickly) and then visit the Museum with calm. If you have time, please perform the guided visit, but otherwise there is no problem. At the end there is an area so that the children show what they have seen in drawing and there is a wall where exposed those drawings.
