  • This is your typical naval museum - many scale models, detailed maps of historic battles, paeans to national heroes like Arturo Prat and Castelo Branco. If you already know a bit about Chilean history...  more »

  • Good place to spend 20 - 30 minutes and learn some interesting facts about Chile naval development. Admission was 1000 per person (Dec., 2016)
  • good experience, if you are in a large group, ideal ask for a guide to take advantage of the ride. On 2nd floor is models and the living room of the battleship Almirante Latorre

  • Nice collection for those who enjoy history and maritime and military items. Some account of the history of Chile as well. Access can be by car or via lift (I recommend this). The coolest thing is see the capsules used in the rescue of the Chilean miners. The entrance is well into account.
