Nao Victoria Museo, Punta Arenas

(4.5/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Very good trip visiting 3 replicas of historic ships in the history of the end of the world. Miss in Punta Arenas.

  • 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.
