Magellan's Victory and Darwin's Beagle have been replicated here on a 1 : 1 scale. So you can go into the bowels of the ships, see how they cooked, where they slept and generally how they survived. This museum is fascinating but about 20 minutes...More

The best place to visit to look back at what happened 5 centuries ago. Fantastic job done by the owner and it is so nice to be able to hear his story. A must do when you visit the straight of Magallanes and Patagonia.

I specially enjoyed talking to the owner of this private museum. He has built these replicas from scratch and there is a historic background to each of the ships which is very interesting to hear directly from him. Well done!!!

Amazing what 300 sailors in 5 ships have achieved some 500 years ago. The replica ships are a must seeing when one visits Punta Arenas.
