Advice needed on Spanish Museums and ammo sites

I am going on a car ride from Ourense to Barcelona, then Valencia, then back to Galicia at the end of July. I’ve never been to Spain. Since this site is visited by people who either live in Europe or have vastly superior travel experience than mine, I’ll be glad to get any info on historical places in Spain (along my route).

Vlad,

Don’t know if this is along your travel route but here is a suggestion, photos and info from the web-

"Army Museum

The Military Museum of Cartagena, inaugurated on June 11, 1997, is located in the historic building of the Royal Park and Artillery Maestranza, headquarters of the successive Coast Regiments that, with different denominations, have settled in Cartagena. The origins of the building date back to the second half of the eighteenth century.
With an exhibition area of ​​3,520 m2, it is divided into thematic rooms distributed over two floors, reflecting in them the heterogeneity of the Army, its peculiarity and the diversity of its funds. The tour begins with the cannon room, which shows one of the most numerous and important artillery collections of the twentieth century in Spain. In it we can see coast guns, antiaircraft, campaign, mountain and against car. Below is the ammunition room, with a wide and varied range of projectiles and fuzes and the anti-aircraft artillery room, with pieces representative of the evolution of this since the Civil War to the present day.
