As history buff and former US Navy sailor I enjoyed the collection. Displays were well labeled and interesting. Of particular interest was the war with Peru though with a battle lost but a war won.

Husband and I visited the Naval Museum, and both enjoyed it. He loves all things to do with ships, ocean, and navy, and enjoyed immensely. I could have gone through in an hour vs two hours, but did enjoy also. Reasonable charge-$3 USD. Closed mid-day,...More

They had a video showing footage from Shackleton's trip and other helpful information to give a visitor a concept of it all. Also nice naval models. About a 30 to 45 minute visit is adequate

Well worth a 1hr stop. Numerous exhibits showing the Naval history of Chile in the area. Very interesting and informative. The sheer number of wrecks surprised me.

Many small rooms filled with memorabilia of all kind as well as a replica radio room and weather station. We enjoyed our visit. If you cannot read Spanish, cards are available at the cash desk with a partial English translation.

A wonderfull maritime collection. An entire room devoted to the many lighthouses in the area and a wonderful exhibition on the rescue of the Shackleton crew from Elephant Island. They are justifiably very proud of the local boy who probably saved their lives.
