It's well organized and there you learn about the history of Acapulco and it's importance during the colonial period. You can learn about the importance of Acapulco for the strong interaction between the colonial Mexico and the colonial Philippines.

Located inside the San Diego Fort. It is very informative and interesting. A visit to Acapulco will be incomplete if you don't visit this museum.
