This is a lovely museum with the first floor dedicated to the naval history of Mexico; the second floor more or less highlights the Navy's current capability and training programs. The staff consists of helpful naval recruits. I highly recommend.

I was here about 5 years ago, and they have made a lot of improvements. It is a nice little museum, and worth a stop to get some Mexican history. Most of the exhibits are in english. Very interesting

I was nicely surprised. Many exhibits were in English and it was quite interesting. This is a great way for a sun burnt family to kill an afternoon.

Stopped here while walking the boardwalk during a family vacation in PV. Although not large this museum is new, well maintained and interesting. It takes about an hour to go through and you'll learn a lot about the history of the Mexican navy.

Touring this museum was a trip through history from pre-Columbian to Spanish and French control to Mexican- American conflicts to the present day. We went on a Wednesday and by chance had free admission.
