  • One of the most amazing naval museums that I have ever seen! The collections are SPECTACULAR. On the fifth floor there is an exhibit of sea shells that is unique and most impressive. What gemstone!! Bravo!!!
  • Amazing hidden gem Not so crowded like the super touristic spots But with great exhibits and a lot of history The museum could be a bit more interactive as it has a classical/old school structure
