  • Lousy meeting that the Museum is in maintenance during the summer, being that it is when most tourists in the city of Valdivia

  • It's really incredible, the way to optimize space. It is really not for the claustrophobic, it is one thing to be there and visit another imagine to be your place of work for several days. Really is very interesting, you do see a form of work and a culture (nautical) very different and unknown. The guide is really super and you care very much, you have to enter with helmet

  • Yesterday, we read on the web site of the submarine O'Brien that they began to sell their tickets at 10 AM. We arrived much earlier to ensure a quota. And it was closed. Several posters said "closed for maintenance". But that information was not in your website. Posters not said when it would be closed. Were witnesses of how a large amount of the people came with their children and friends to know the underwater and is retired disappointed. Should I say that rather than closed for maintenance, the place seems closed by abandonment. There was trash on the floor all over the place. The ticket booth was scratched, there was no adequate infrastructure for visitors, bath was chemical, located outside, next to the trash and next to the ticket office. Neither had people that care the place or that were making the so-called maintenance. In short, our visit to the submarine O'Brien was a complete disaster. Neither US interests back in a next visit to Valdivia.
