  • 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
