  • 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.
