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.

    Good place to learn about the history of some boats that passed through our seas, can be a guided tour if it is required, even for foreign visitors and at a very low cost.

    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.
