  • It's a beauty above all replica of the ship of Magellan. A place for wonder impetdible of as get this expedition to Chile. The space and conditions for a long journey leads us to the decision and fortalrza of these adventurers. Also after entering a schooner of 1520 can climb aboard that Darwin brought to these places 300 years later. Beautiful museum that should go

  • More than the Museum ship, is to feel what the men felt in the original and its large global crossing almost 500 years ago! Chile

  • Very interesting museum. Amazing to think that men survived in ships that small. Not many people would willingly do that nowadays.  more »

  • Outdoor museum with accessible replicas of HMS Beagle, Magellan's Nao Victoria, Shackleton's lifeboat, and more. The helpful curator serves free coffee too.
  • Nice museum. Pity very little commentary in English
  • Interesting place to visit right by the straight of Magellan, taking you back to the time those adventurers dared the untamed seas
  • The best for all sailors ... :-)
  • Nice to see older boats

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.
