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.

The guide describes progression of the naval history in Mexico and the various types of missions they carry out. There are models of ships from the past to the current and there is an opportunity to virtually manoeuvre a ship in or out of port.

Courteous military people are ready to tell you their history. A small museum ( used to be free ) for a dollar or two. Ex-Miltary is free.
