  • The main attraction was a full size replica of one of Ferdinand Magellan's ships. Also on exhibit were Darwin's HMS Beagle and Shackleton's James Caird. 
  • We did visit family and it was quite interesting. The replica of the ship is very well made and with the audio guides is made more interesting ride. In addition there are other two ships and the landscape is beautiful.

  • The visit is very cheap and worth seeing the boat that turned to the world. It is impressive because of the small size for this feat. This very well maintained and have liven spaces to get an idea of the trip. It includes audioguide.

  • 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.
