A must visit museum for anyone including families with children too- simply put fantastic- you visit inside a Submarine- A Frigate - A Helicopter and a Large Sea going vessel- simply amazing- 50% discount for over 60 years old visitors the only Downside was no brochures in English.
Nice cafetaria and souvenir shop too.

The museum is above average with old barracks, old naval munitions, and stores. The officers/enlisted quarters are of particular interest along with the hospital.

This museum is more than just a naval museum (although it's very good in that respect); it covers the history of disputes between colonial powers more thoroughly than I've seen this covered anywhere else. It is also very frank about deficiencies in the resources allocated to the Brazilian Navy in the 20th century. Once one has visited this and the National History Museum one should have a clear understanding of how Brazil developed into the country that it is today.

Small and a bit tired, but this museum nicely complements the National History Museum which is a few blocks away. Some of the explanations are not translated to English so a basic understanding of Portuguese comes in handy.

This is a museum not only for those interested in the Brazilian Navy History but also for anyone interested in Brazilian History (of course, from the Navy point of view). Very well organized, this small museum covers the Brazilian Navy role since before its independence until past WW2. Very interesting.

Also its tourist friendly as everything (except for the video/audio parts) has english subtitles.
