“A tiny weeny fort!”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

This is a very small place, which is not really worth seeing. I thought that the audio commentary of the display cases was hilarious, something like: "in case number one, there are bits of guns" ... That's it!. Don't bother to go!

“Pretty cool”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

This is an inexpensive stop as part of a city tour that is pretty cool to see.15-30 minutes is more than enough time to take it all in.You get a close up view of Puerto Plata Harbour as well
