The Naval Museum is housed in old shipyards which are of a gothic style, so they are well worth taking a look at even if you choose not to enter. Inside the building, you can take a personal tour using a headset which will give you all the information that you need to know about the exhibits, in a variety of languages.
There is a model of Magellan's 'Santa Maria', as well as huge life sized replica of Juan de Austria's Lepanta 'Galera' with a virtual reality show of the crew - which gives you a great idea of what it was like to be on the ship at the time. As well as these impressive ships, there are maps, dioramas and things brought back to Europe from America on display.
