Nao Victoria Museo, Punta Arenas

(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Named after one of the most famous ships in the history of navigation, Nao Victoria Museo features full-size replicas of historical ships, weapons, and ancient navigation tools, as well as an outdoor shipbuilding workshop. Nao Victoria was part of Ferdinand Magellan's fleet and the only ship of the five to complete the first trip around the globe. Interactive exhibits allow you to board the ships, handle the sailing rig, and relive the adventures of explorers such as Magellan, Williams, and Shackleton. On the decks life-size figures depict daily tasks--get up close and observe their costumes, muskets, and swords. Audio guides are available in six languages.

  • It's fun, and you learn tired as they were the ships that are traveling past, helps you better understand the story. Council for the visitor: ask guide local to interpret Council for it community: serious good for who are Magellanic to give a granite of sand to these projects as the hms beagle and the schooner ancud les lack finish some details.

  • A quirky museum with several life sized replicas of ships (inc Magellan’s Nao Victoria and Darwin’s Beagle) that you can walk on/ in etc. It is, however, quite a way out of town- you will need a taxi ...  more »
  • It has replicas of 3 extremely precarious boats that were used to get to Sandy point (current Punta Arenas). One of them to travel from Chiloe. Is can upload to all and visit each one of its nooks and crannies.

  • Wonderful and unforgettable. The replica of the Nao Victoria leaves breathless, like the Beagle. The replica of the lifeboat of Shackleton is a hymn to the human spirit. It is dirt cheap and very instructive.

  • I liked the Nao Victoria. Not only by ships that there are life-size. If not for the history which is part of the conquest of Magellan and tierra del fuego. In addition is the goleta Ancud and the Beagle.

  • Incredible replicas. It shows the love and the passion in each work. I also took a pleasant surprise to see the replica of the sailboat that Ernst Shackleton initiated the rescue to get out alive with all his people after two years as missing in Antarctica. Totally and absolutely recommended.
