The museum is laid out over several rooms and two courtyards, and it includes a life-size replica of the Goleta Ancud schooner, a Chilean warship built in 1843, in one of the courtyards.

  • The Museum is the result of the efforts of many, including father Abel Macías (RIP), the organization that took the father's legacy in their hands and by the way the authorities. Highlighted the replica of the goleta Ancud, boat of great importance in it takes of possession of the narrow of Magellan and then the Patagonia. There is another replica of the ship in Punta Arenas. The trip from Ancud was carried out in 1843. Apart this replica there is much to do in a rather small museum but which has very valuable pieces. It is very well maintained, it is free. Striking that the dimensions of the schooner that appear on a commemorative plaque of the waterfront are not real, there is a clear error that would indicate that it was the size of a boat ride... It is curious that the authority has not noticed this error. In short, very interesting. I recommend reading about the historical context before to take advantage of the visit.
