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.

The Museo Naval is a really creepy place. There is lots of canons and stuff outside, when you want to enter the museum you are received by a grumpy looking soldier, selling the tickets. The museum itself is cramped full of stuff - some of...More
