This is so newly updated that your guidebook may not mention how spectacular it is. You can view yourself in the rigging of a ship, captain an aircraft carrier, sit in a helicopter (if you are 12 or under). Totally worth the small admission price.

Most interesting to know how a hand full of teen agers defended their city and school against the American invasion of 1914

This museum is run by the Mexican Navy. Everything is absolutely spotless and there is a lot to see, starting in pre-hispanic times up through today. Clearly a lot of thought and pride went into this museum. Covers Mexican history which admittedly can be quite confusing. All the indoor exhibits are cool and dark and can be a delightful relief...

Nicely done presentation of Mexican naval history. Some excellent multimedia rooms. Well thought out and informative, I guess One major complaint. All of the explainaions of the exhibits are in Spanish. No English. When we toured the Luoce and the Orsay in Paris last month, 75% of the exhibits or more were into and sometime four languages. Draw your own... More

Great place, every Mexican citizen must go over there and spend some time learning about Veracruz's history. The place is impeccable, it was extremely clean and organized. All the rooms have a dedicated topic regarding a time frame on Mexico's History. I learned a lot of things about Veracruz's people. I highly recommend to visit this place with your family.... More

The Naval Museum was recently renovated and it looks impeccable. It has all kinds of items in their exhibit, audio, video, interactive as well as historical items. After the tour is completed you can pay a visit to their souvenir shop and of course, the coffee shop. The coffee shop has been nicely decorated and they have several things on... More

The remodeled museum now charges an entrance fee. However, the fee is well worth the intersting, well presented exhibits.
