  • I've been twice at the Museum between June and September. It pays to know much of the history of Chile, besides the beauty of the place up the Artilleria Ascensor. There is a capsule of the miners and many items of naval history.

  • The Museum is interesting, contains a little of the history of Valparaiso and has a wonderful view of the city, the port, of the sea. Massss which makes mandatory the passage Valparaiso are the capsules that were used to rescue of the Chilean miners trapped almost 700 meters deep in the mine San Jose in 2010.0, that moved the world. It is possible to enter the capsule and feel like it was the ransom and the feeling of being there. It's pretty cool!

  • 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
