The museum is based inside the fort with many exhibits and displays. Well worth a visit as the view across the harbour will be a reminder of your visit.

This is an excellent and informative museum that looks at Acapulco’s historical role in the Spanish trade with the Far East. You could easily spend two hours or more wandering through the many exhibits. Information in Spanish and English. Highly recommended.

A good opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, since the museum location is inside the iconic El Fuerte de San Diego. On display, many captivating artifacts and items, with signs in both English and Spanish. You may admire a replica of one of the famous Spanish galleons, who allegedly open the first global trade route in the Pacific. By the same token, you’ll learn about the history of Acapulco and its role during the colonial period. Enjoy the spectacular views from the fort and don’t forget the sunscreen.

Classical fort design of the time. Excellent source of history: early colonialism, protecting capitol from piracy, and view is amazing. Many other places to tour and go see close by.
