Museo de los Naufragios y Tesoros, Colonia del Sacramento

1.5
#7 of 12 in Museums in Colonia del Sacramento
Find out about life on the high seas at Museo de los Naufragios y Tesoros, a fun and informative museum dedicated to all things nautical. The museum takes the form of a walk-through diorama, with dummies dressed in period uniforms and surrounded by plastic scenery. Don't miss the scale model of a pirate galleon, and an army of life-size pirate models scattered throughout the museum's main hall. If you can tear yourself away from the pirates, you'll also find plenty of space afforded to the South America's history of trade, the workings of colonial economies, and life on the sea during the wars of independence.

  • Some time ago I visited this place autodenominadi Museum and the experience was regrettable. The material is presented without any kind of organization and the specimen lacks the slightest scientific rigor. Resembling more a school shows that a museum. Poorly lit display cases, historical information without sources or verifiable history of any kind...

  • Well mounted and interesting. Shows remains of shipwrecks that occurred in the region. Decorated in playful form, which lets children enjoy the ride. For adults, the cool are the pieces recovered and the story.

  • The Museum is very small, a few objects and some pictures. Would not come back to the site. Located in the central area of the historic centre.

  • It is a nice museum visit, it's nothing otherworldly. The entry could be cheaper.

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
