I stopped in at this museum as a rainy day activity and was not disappointed. Spain is one of the world's most famous seafaring nations and this museum displays that aspect of Spanish history very well. As the name suggests, this museum is primarily military...More

Good museum that includes history of Spanish and other naval force. Museum includes models of different ships(galleons ...), unarmed torpedoes, swords, guns and other ship staff from old to modern century. The only one negative side it is in Spain :)

This is a great museum, but a bit off an oddball. It’s jam packed with artifacts of all sorts and you can get real close to virtually all of it. The collections and the galleries are all over the place, not particularly organized by timeline,...More

The museum was interesting but it did not have as many exhibits as I thought it would have. It was well laid out and I enjoyed it but it could’ve had more historical events in the descriptions.
