Small museum with a nominal charge to view. Worth checking especially if you're interested in the Admiral Graf Spee and the Battle of the River Plate from World War II. There is good information, pictures and naval artifacts from the ship on display.

Close to the water, and at U$ 20, the museum provides a rest from the sun (or rain) depending. The display of the naval history of Uruguay is interesting, but the key drawing card is the story of the Graf Spee. A large gun, recently...More
