It´s the firs Interactive Naval Museum en Latin American. You´re going to know about naval history and see all the ship, aroun 16 diferent areas. It´s great. And is in Veracruz, I mean, Boca del Río. Boca del Río it´s a beutiful place, has diferents shops, hotels, bar-restaurants (the sea food is excelent) and one war ship, Cañonero Guanajuato. You don´t forget it.

I enjoyed my time on that ship. Our guide, Mr Pedro is great. He knows every corner of that boat and let you know what happened with that boat when it was on service. Thakn you Mr Pedro for your time!

It has a really interesting history, the tourist guides are kind and funny.. It's also cheap! The entrance is 56 pesos and they show you a lot of places inside... The view is great from the restaurant. I highly recommend this place .

From a distance, the old ship looks great. But upon arrival and closer inspection, it is in a rather poor state of affairs. More restaurant than museum, there isn't much here to see. Better to spend your time in the cute town of Boca communicating...More

The local fishermen were displaced and this old, rusting gunboat built some 80 years ago in Spain, was towed in as a business enterprise. Without a corps of volunteers it's impossible to maintain a ship like this - many are scrapped for that very reason....More
