Been there many times it's a museum inside an old fort ! The rooms are air conditioned but you can go outside on top of fort for great views of the city ! Right across from cruise ship terminal ! A must do

We were not happy with this tour. We went by coach to see the Cliff Divers at 11:00 AM. IT was an very hot humid day. The guide took us into a store and everyone got sort of mixed up. We ended up standing out...More

The museum has their displays translated into English, so you can go and read about the history of Acapulco especially relating to the relationship with the East. The displays are nice, the rooms are air conditioned, and the view is spectacular. Entrance price is $55...More

The fort is incredibly clean and very well laid out. All the exhibits are in air-conditioned rooms and the settings are wonderful. The attention to detail right down to the wood work of the floors and the poles in the rooms is really good. Even...More

A tour of the Fort holds a lot more than just meandering through an old fort. Get a guide who knows the history and can take you along the history journey for this area of Mexico. There are several rooms that contain bits of the...More

My wife and I visited the fort yesterday. It has a small museum inside that costs about $5 to view. It has some nice artifacts and nice things and is air-conditioned. But the fort itself was a little disappointing. The views from the fort though...More

History buff who enjoyed this very much. Did it in the city tour so it felt rushed. Should have done it as a stand alone. Cool structure and great reading about the artifacts in English.

This fort is gorgeous! There is a museum inside and the views from the different look outs are amazing. We only had one day in Acapulco so we just spent an hour or so here, but it was worth the visit!

Great idea to have a museum in a beautiful historic fort. You walk from room to room tracing the history of the area. There is a nice collection of artifacts. This isn't a large museum but definitely worth checking out.

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
