Naval Museum - Review
This museum is an extension of the naval museum in Madrid. Located on the port, it does not have much by the way of artifacts but it does have a fantastic collection of reconstructed boat models and cityscapes. In fact the collection is incredibly comprehensive. There are exhibitions on maps and navigation, marine infantry, the history of diving in the Navy, submarine weaponry, marine armaments, flags and uniforms, marine healthcare and an arsenal. Historical objects include a letter from Christopher Columbus, a World War II torpedo, a bullet from the attack on Cartagena in 1873, and a 1920 submarine B Italian torpedo. The building itself is historical; it used to serve as a Spanish naval hospital. Check the museum calendar for possible events.

Naval Museum, Cartagena Reviews
Took a guided tour. It was great, we learned a lot about the Colombian history and politics. It would have been a bit dull without the guide I think. Highly recommended the guided tour. It is free, and you leave the tip you want.
Nice place, you get the chance to learn more about the history of Cartagena. In addition, you learn about the battle of Cartagena in 1741 amazing info if you are fan of that stuff. Important you have to know Spanish because all the info it is in Spanish.
Excellent....if you want to know about the history of Cartagena- Colombia and how invaders wanted to take possession of the city and take their treasures, this is the perfect place.
Fun place. Cool things to look at and located right down town. Price was about $5 or 10,000 cop. There is no English translation on the displays so that might be disappointing if you actually want to learn about the history of Cartagena ( I know Spanish so it wasn't a problem for me). Overall we spent about 1hr there and would definitely recommend if you are nearby.
Most boring and overpriced museum I've ever been to! The 2nd floor has some installations (inc my fave:the stuffed dogs head?!) but otherwise It's just reams of printed text on the wall (you must know Spanish)...much better idea is to buy a history book and read in the comfort of a cafe.
