  • This was an unmissable visit when in Punta Arenas, but I am a maritime history fan so perhaps unsurprising! The replicas really do give the visitor an excellent of just how cramp and uncomfortable...  more »
  • A must visit! I have always wonder the feeling of being side an old school ship... my god this is one locatuon that will take you back. You can walk on the ship and has access to everything inside. You become a crew member of the ship. They have so much information and so much to see. They charged around 6 dollars to get in. It's worth it!
  • A fun little museum which has a replica of Darwin’s ship. Kids can explore the whole ship. It definitely needs to be spruced up.
