This is a small but excellent museum. The submarine is the highlight, but I had had enough after about 45 mins. My partner just loved this place and I couldn't get him to leave - I suppose it is more of a man's thing. I...More

Closed for siesta. However once inside its good. However English speaking personel and explanations could be a great improvement. Note the underwater museum is just next door containing a uboat invented by a Spanish guy. Which created a sensation in the Spanish world.

Dived this site twice. Lots of marine life as well as a large sunken barge with lots of penetration points and a sea harrier.

I thought it was quite interesting, my wife was less impressed. In my opinion the ship models were fabulous and there was some other quite interesting stuff there - particularly the submarine part. My wife got bored fairly quickly!
