The museum is located in a military building, so you need a security check and ID card. It is free, but thanks for donations. The models of these ships are very good, and the exhibits are well planned. Shows the huge influence of the Spanish Navy. Look for the oldest map of Aneriga, a map of the world drawn by Juan de Lacosa, 1500. There is an exhibition in the Philippines. In addition, there is an exhibition showing the archaeological discoveries found in the gallery. Very suitable for navy lovers and history lovers. About 5 minutes walk to Prado.
There are Chinese explanations, according to the exhibit’s age, which tells the history of Spanish navigation, war and modern history. The small exhibition hall is filled with a large number of ship models, cross-sectional views, ship head portraits, nautical charts, naval battle paintings, and blue and white porcelain salvaged from sunken ships. , It also includes special ship weapons in several colonies and so on.
Not far from Prada, there is a small door face. If you don’t pay attention, you will miss it. However, there are still many exhibits. Various sailing models confirm the image of this once maritime power. The physical exhibits are also very rich. Weapons, furniture, instruments, clothing, equipment and facilities, etc. Unfortunately, we don’t know Spanish or have historical background knowledge, so we can only sit and watch. What impressed me was a huge painting of Columbus and a few early torpedo exhibits. The museum is free, and there is a small shop selling goods, which feels good.
