  • This open-air museum is highly recommended. Local maritime enthusiasts have built the Victoria, one of the ships of the fleet of Magellan. Crazy how you could sail with such cases around the world. To stand and to explore in all corners, much gives a better impression than books, photos or videos can convey. Very much recommended.

  • Love this attraction. Recommended. You get a chance to go up to these three ships.
  • What and achievement especially Shackletons "James Crid"
  • Nice and good history info. There are Three ships scale 1:1 of the Magallan expedition.
  • Not to be missed. Their ships are very well done. A great ride for grown-ups and children when they visit Punta Arenas.

Where to stay in Punta Arenas

Punta Arenas boasts a huge selection of hotel options within its bustling sprawl, which range from low-key restored manors and homes to modern lodges and high-rises packed with amenities. You'll find an array of mid-range accommodations in the city's downtown area, within a few blocks of the waterfront and river. This gives you easy access to many of the city's most popular attractions and places to visit. However, Punta Arenas features very few true budget accommodations due to the large tourist industry and huge influx of cruise ship passengers that frequent town.
