Really recommend it and the section of the East west trade route through veracruz to Acapulco for the Philippines was facsinating. Plus it was... More

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.

This is one of the places that fills my chest with pride of being Mexican!, How amazing is this museum?, Really amazing!, You will find stories and memorabilia that will take you back in time to really appreciate the efforts, discipline and engineering that a naval fleet needs to work/function.

I read that this was the best museum in Veracruz, so when I found myself right outside I decided to visit. It's cheap to get in ($2 or $3 US, I think) and really nicely done: high tech displays in an historic building, plenty to see from the time of the Spanish conquest to the present day, including news reports...
