The “Victoria” boat Museum

This privately owned and run museum is number 4 out of 70 of things to do in Punta Arenas. It has full size replicas of the “Victoria” and the “Beagle”. It’s a fair way out of town requiring a taxi to get there then entrance fee of about $10 Australian. It’s worth it. It’s reasonably well maintained and quite impressive and there are lots of interactive information bays in both Spanish and English

The Beagle – of Charles Darwin fame
The deck of the “Victoria “

The full size replica of “the Victoria” the boat in which Magellan circumnavigated the globe and discovered the eponymous strait. Please refrain from making schoolboy howler comments.
