Museo Naval

The Museo Naval is a small museum in Montevideo located on the waterfront between Pocitos beach and Buceo's harbor. It has two rooms packed with models and artifacts of Uruguay's navy. Perhaps the most impressive piece is the big 150mm gun from the Graf Spee displayed outside the building.

Admission is free. Closed Thursdays.

I guess that for a while (don't know if still is there) they had the eagle that was recovered from the front of the Graff Spee in exhibition. I guess at one Best Western hotel near Montevideo Shopping. Do you know if that's still there? It's surely worth a picture.
Here's a link to a story about the Graff Spee's eagle being recovered:
