  • Let's see, does not make it a bad Museum, which isn't it, but it is pretty lame. To the chavalería, you may like it. And if a school trip better than better, but for an adult audience has more charm for example see the submarine Peral where you palpas more history

  • I think it is lame and turns on the same ideas, but in a very general way. One thing that I didn't like anything is in a relatively small room three officers, two of them sitting all the time and chatting with the mobile. I'm sorry but in times that are, it is not acceptable that an official of this image. And I say that being an official. I have to say that one of them was pending from the interactive function correctly.
