“Worthwhile visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

It's well organized and there you learn about the history of Acapulco and it's importance during the colonial period. You can learn about the importance of Acapulco for the strong interaction between the colonial Mexico and the colonial Philippines.

“NIce Little Museum: Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

The museum is built into the San Diego fortress, the most iconic historic spot in Acapulco. Well worth an hour's visit if you can read Spanish, and the view over the harbour, the Pacific and parts of the city are also worth the visit. Pity that that Acapulco has so little attention paid to its rich past- in the colonial period or in the twentieth century. Take lots of sun screen location if you're going to be walking around the fortress itself
