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.

There are a few rooms to visit, and the guide spoke fast and was difficult to understand. Mostly obvious explanations: "this is the rap to communicate"... There is a short video, also of low quality. The museum is supposed to be interactive, but aside from randomly pushing the buttons of a long dead radio, I did not sees any evidence... More

If you are expecting something similar to the US military vessel you'll be disappointed. This is an old Mexican ship which served well to the Mexican military. It was trade with grains some 80 years ago. The history tells us a lot about it. From what I hear it depends on the guide that you get. I would suggest to... More

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 with the locals. Or go to the main square to people watch. Definitely not worth... 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. It looks salvaged: rusted and modified with an odd superstructure that looks like a chicken... More
