This free museum was a lot bigger than we had anticipated, and a lot more modern too. If you can read Spanish (no English available), it is very interesting to understand the history of Veracruz. It is good to visit this museum prior to visit the fortress of San Juan de Ulua - it gives some historical context.

This museum exceed my expectations. There are some naval vehicles in the esplanade where you can enter free but don't miss all the experience.

It's clear, Mexico is proud of it's navy. They spared little expense on this museum It was closed for renovation when we arrived in Veracruz, but opened before we left. It was freshly painted and pristine. The exhibits were extremely well done. The museum follows a counter clockwise circle around the perimeter of the building. Don't be fooled by the... More

Really enjoyed this museum. It has excellent exhibits and has some interesting things for children. Some of the cadets were there and were very helpful and gave us more information about the museum.

The museum is well maintained and has some nice exhibits. But given the long naval history of Mexico and Veracruz in particular, there is not a lot to see. Plan to spnd an hour or so if you want to take in every exhibit fully, a half hour otherwise.

This new museum is really outstanding. It shows the naval history of the country from precolonial times to the present. Many interactive games help you to enter a world long ago - if you try to build a ship yourself, navigate on the ocean or accompany Cortés on his siege of Tenochtitlán. You enter the world of the oceans with... More
