  • One of the most beautiful and well taken care of I've ever seen. As they take pride in their naval history. The place is spotless, perfect, even if you don't know the story, it's worth it!

  • Learn a little about the history of a country is always great. This museum combines history and art, it's worth staying tuned to detail ... the stained glass Windows are stunning when falling in the afternoon.

  • I went. What I found very interesting. There is possibility to buy books on the war of the Pacific. And Naval literature. Also memories of the Museum. Outside there is a viewpoint to the Bay of Valparaiso. And a craft fair. Recommended ride in Valparaiso.

  • Acervo legal para quem curte história e itens militares e marítimos. Conta um pouco da história do Chile também. O acesso pode ser de carro ou via ascensor (recomendo este). O mais legal é ver as capsulas utilizadas no resgate dos chilenos mineiros. A entrada é bem em conta.
  • I like to visit the Museum by its history
