  • I had the opportunity to live almost 7 years in Valparaíso, the time that I visited this museum was in family, I have to say that it is giant, full of maritime treasures that surprises you, not only considered vessels but art and decoration. Simply recommended as family outing

  • No need to spend hours here, but it is well curated, on lovely grounds. Still with a bit of whimsy. Not crowded. No hovering guards. Very inexpensive.  more »
  • Nice Museum, with several attractions. One of the most famous is the Phoenix capsule, which was used in the rescue of the miners after landslide in Chile's mines in 2010.

  • 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
