Cedam Museum

History buffs and anyone interested in the maritime past of Puerto Rico will want to take a visit to the Cedam Museum. The museum features exhibits that will take visitors through the naval history of the island, and more specifically the La Gloria area.


The Cedam Museum offers paper guides that allow guests to explore the exhibits at the own pace. Visitors will find exhibits detailing the impact that sailing has had for the local and island-wide way of life. The museum also features collections of shipwrecks that have been recovered from the area. Pirate fans will also enjoy a small cannon collection that the museum maintains.

Location and What's Nearby

There at least a couple nearby outdoor options to participate in during the times when you and your group are not touring Cedam Museum. Tourists who will enjoy trying out their aptitude at the course, can do so at the closest golfing facility, which is Riviera Maya Golf Club. If you aren't a golfer, you're not out of luck - head to Hard Rock Private Beach, which is the closest coastline to visit. Although the selection isn't overly extensive, one or two other comparable outdoor activities to choose from nearby. If you'd prefer to stay inside, there are also a few other attractions within a short distance. One of the few indoor sites in the area by the museum that vacationers might adore is Dolphin Discovery.



The museum does not charge for admission, though they do ask for donations to help with the museum's maintenance.
