  • We know only because we'd like to see the replica of the Fenix (capsule that rescued the 33 Chileans). We took pictures. Valley history.

  • Right at the exit of the funicular of cerro artillery, well maintained building. Side entrance, next to the market that there's every day. The Museum is great and there's a lot to see. The museum gift shop, where you enter of fact at the Museum, has several nice articles and interesting prices. Quality products are pretty cool.

  • An essential place for anyone who is interested in issues marine or better still has dedicated itself to navigate. The only thing regrettable is that has dedicated a room to the Commander of the Navy which began in Valparaiso with the military maneuvers that preceded the coup.

  • Good place to spend 20 - 30 minutes and learn some interesting facts about Chile naval development. Admission was 1000 per person (Dec., 2016)
  • Great place to go with the children know the story of the Chilean Navy. Several lounges with many interesting parts, a cute and nice garden with a coffee shop. One of the attractions is the capsule in which the Chilean miners were rescued. Well worth visiting.

  • The visit to this Museum provides a great opportunity to know the history of Chile, in addition to providing contact with sea mines, torpedoes, guns used in naval combat. Is still exhibited in the Museo the capsule used to rescue the miners trapped in the mine in 2010. Are exposed drawings recording passage of Charles Darwin by the Chilean coast, where the image portrays the vessel Beagles, where Darwin traveled.
