  • For my has been a disappointment since the visit is long (3 hours) and not is nothing enjoyable, the explanations are very technical and long losing is in details unnecessary and them children or people without training basic scientific not is learn of nothing, is too time of visit for what finally is sees. The visit is of self-congratulation that scientific diffusion, should be deleted the initial audiovisual (30 min) and not waste time on so many details... the visit should not last more than 1 hour since it is soporific. There are many visits more interesting in the Bay of Cadiz that is.

  • If you come to visit us no can leave us without soon arrange a visit to the Royal Observatory, the scientific centre of the Navy from which is set the official time in Spain. A guided visit through the history of the national astronomy and in particular carried out by Navy scientists. See the telescope, the clock Atomic, the different instruments of measurement of the time, the astros and them seismographs. A visit without a very special scientific Center.
