Museo Naval del Caribe - Museum Cartagena - Colombia

This extensive Museo Naval del Caribe recounts Cartagena’s remarkable naval history. The building comprises two wings, separated by gardens. The west, or colonial, wing was constructed in the early 17th century as a Jesuit school, in association with the Iglesia de San Pedro Claver next door, and later became a hospital. In the early 20th century, the east, or republican, wing was built to quarter the first batallion of the Colombian Marines. Upstairs, you can find naval weapons and ship parts. Artifacts such as anchors, cannons and other sea instruments are also on display. This museum is a great way to learn about the city’s maritime legends and history.
