Museo de los Naufragios y Tesoros, Colonia del Sacramento
(1.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Colonia del Sacramento trip itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Museo de los Naufragios y Tesoros and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

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