We visited today and it is interesting. It really is a pity that almost every piece of information is written only in Spanish. I do not speak the lingo and missed much of interest.

Don’t miss this! Excellent in every way. Small, intimate with loads of stuff to see. Make sure to see the display of the battle off SAnta Cruz and listen to the narrative.

Quite an old fashioned museum but there are plenty of exhibits. Much more could be made of the story telling aspects but still worth a visit.

The museum is free which is a bonus. There is no English translation but you can get the gist of things. Interesting display of militaria. Worth a look.
