Nowadays, an important...More

This is really a gem of a museum that covers Spain’s maritime history, with emphasis on the rise and decline. We enjoyed it for a good 1.5 hours before moving on for a food reservation.

It is just up from the Prado and across from Thyssen Krup museum but you could walk right past it. I was definitely worth the 3 euro admission. You got to like ships and naval art.

...of long departed navy officers. If you're into portraiture and scale models of old ships, then don't miss this. I think the cost was 3€ pp so it's not expensive. Most signage is Spanish, very little English translation, which should be expected.
