All reviews air conditioned nice museum beautiful fort spanish empire sir francis drake history museum the cruise ship terminal great view of the city entrance fee the cliff exhibits pirate mexico manila bay replica veracruz
It’s a very good museum to spend the afternoon, the rooms where you can look at some archeological pieces have AC so you can have a break from the heat in Acapulco. The museum is well arranged and the view from the fort is nice.

As far as I remember, yes. Sometimes, when you don't have a handicap, it is sad to say, you don't notice. Most of the area is cobblestone and uneven. I remember some of the rooms had ramps for the displays. The parking lot... More
As far as I remember, yes. Sometimes, when you don't have a handicap, it is sad to say, you don't notice. Most of the area is cobblestone and uneven. I remember some of the rooms had ramps for the displays. The parking lot was loose stones and uneven. The views are great from outside the building.
