  • Nao Victoria, is excellent both for adults and children. They should incorporate it into the tourism in Punta Arenas, what is wonderful, already has lots of culture, foreigners would be perplexed to see these replicas of the boats of our ancient culture. The owner, very polite and friendly, let what children touch all weapons, what is disfrazara of a Hernando de Magallanes was wonderful!. Excellent work, should recognize the work of their creator. Best regards. Emerita.

  • We took a taxi to discover these three constructions of ships to the scale that allows to realize the conditions of travel that we know of the Magellan and company. Impressive. An audio guide in several languages was provided.

  • I've been to many museums in my travels but not only NaoVictoria is amazing in the visual but also admirable in the intention of delivering a world-class tourist attraction, Punta Arenas is mandatory to visit it and must be included in all the agendas of the tour operators. It is a project of great nobility, that moved me onto the boats already that is the great effort of its author and also the thought of as they were trips in those days. NaoVictoria manages to transport you back in time and appreciate the culture and nature.

  • 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.
