This was hard to review. Fort Bulnes and Fort Famine are picturesque. The exhibition centre itself is rather meh. Staff was nice. Not really worth the hour trip out from Punta Arenas according to my family.

This is just about as far south as you can get in South America without getting on a boat or plane to the islands. The walk around the recreated old settlement is beautiful and the information clear and in both Spanish and English.

Well worth the drive if not just for the scenery. The museum was a little disappointing being very dark with little information. The cafe was basic at best but did serve nice coffee ... shame as it could offer so much more.

We took an afternoon drive and were excited to discover this informative and significant destination. I learnt about the history of formation and discovery of The Strait of Magellan. Great facilities, very helpful staff, interpretive displays in Spanish and English, and a beautiful coastal walk.
