Interesting place with a variety of salty sea dog exhibits, descriptions mainly in spanish but our excursion guide gave a worthy commentary as we moved through the museum. We were also treated to some folk music/dancing, a very colourful spectacle! Worth a visit if you're...More

This place is never mentioned at all when people talk about popular sites to visit in cartagena, and is way under the radar for popularity. If you like history, this place is a must see location. The museum is inside of a very attractive building...More

Well, if there were pirates in the Caribbean, they were there for Cartagena treasures, right? So this museum is a must. Very interesting exhibits, fun for kids too, the submarine simulator experience alone is worth the ticket price!
