The museum is one of the rare places that do not need an advanced booking of your ticket. It is a rather big venue that fits old and new ships of different size. If you are jnterested in the maritime history of Spain this is a good.place to start. If you make use of the audio guide you can also watch a short movie on the history at the end of the exhibition.

Only downside was that the colonial and slave history fell a bit short considering the rich past.
