  • We all know that Magellan’s 1520 voyage was the first to completely circumnavigate the world, but to actually walk the decks of his ship---and imagine that, well it defines imagination. He started wit...  more »
  • Unfortunately, we were disappointed, because as interesting as was announced, it was not for us. On the fence, which surrounds the site, everything is very unkempt.

  • I really enjoyed my visit to this tourist attraction. It is a reproduction of Ferdinand Magellan's flagship, the Victoria. The ship sits on the shore of the Strait of Magellen at the far eastern end of Punta Arenas. The site is located about seven km from the downtown port facility. Visitors can freely climb about the upper decks and climb down steps into the very belly of the galleon. There is a very, very small gift shop and exhibit in the adjacent building at the foot of the steps.
  • Amazing to think people sailed around the world in boats of this size. Not much information in English and not much to do other than see the 3 boats.
  • Perfect for history and ship lovers. The museum is still growing and it will be a amazing place with many real scale ships.
  • Outdoor museum with accessible replicas of HMS Beagle, Magellan's Nao Victoria, Shackleton's lifeboat, and more. The helpful curator serves free coffee too.
  • Very cool seeing the historical ships of magellens and Darwin.
