Description

This is one of the most interesting museums in order to discover and understand the city of Ferrol. Located in the Arsenal dos Diques, in the Herrerías Building, it enables visitors to understand shipbuilding since the 18th century, a golden time for the city in which almost 400 people worked in this old factory. Ferrol’s historic links with the Spanish Armada and the fact that the first marine engineering school was located here, made the opening of this museum possible, and it was inaugurated in 2008 by the King and Queen of Spain. The route is composed of five areas divided over two floors, in which interesting models of boats, amazing utensils and various machines are displayed. The exhibition also offers audiovisual projections and many curiosities that awaken the interest of visitors of all ages.
