Great expeeience of a tall ship from the late 1800s. Very important in Chile's maritime naval history. Ask for an english guidebook if no tours are available.

A very important part of history which is worth visiting! Unfortunately, all explanations along the well indicated tour is only in Spanish (not an uncommon here in Chile as for the tourism industry assumes its visitors only speak Spanish. Luckily, we did not hav an issue reading the explanations of the items we saw. There were tour guides through the boat to assist however we were able to easily stump them with questions they did not know how to explain or answer. They were quick to blamed the pandemic for being out of practice. The price of admission was CLP$4,000 (USD$4,75) for adults and about 1/2 that for children / students. The self guided tour takes about 40 minutes and its well worth it. Parking near the boat is slim and given its neighborhood surroundings, I would suggested taking all with you to avoid a bad day. The website says you need a reservation to visit, we called and was told that a reservation was not needed (+56572530812) Very glad we went!

We visited this museum on a Saturday at 4:00 PM. I made the reservation online and it was the best thing, as I did not have to wait in line at all.
This is a good museum as you get to know more about history in less than 1 hour. I recommend this place.

built few years ago, this replica museum is located less than a mile away from the real Esmeralda. A professional guide will take you through the daily life in the sailors back in 1879, and will show you how the Esmeralda works from the inside. You get to see everything inside, from the captain's private room to the bucket showers for the sailors. This tour will place you on the final hours before sinking, Captain Prat's Harangue, and the brave fight of all the heroes from the Combate Naval de Iquique ... A must ... thumbs UP.

construido hace unos años, este museo réplica se encuentra a menos de una milla de distancia de la verdadera Esmeralda. Un guía profesional lo guiará a través de la vida cotidiana de los marineros en 1879, y le mostrará cómo funciona la Esmeralda desde adentro. Puedes ver todo dentro, desde la habitación privada del capitán hasta las duchas para los marineros. Este recorrido lo ubicará en las últimas horas antes de hundirse, La arenga del Capitan Prat, y la valiente lucha de todos los héroes del Combate Naval de Iquique ... Una visita obligada ... aprobado.

This is a nice ship and definitely worth the visit but the tours offered are all just in Spanish. There is no chance to visit the ship on your own. There is a small brochure offering some info in English but it is hard to read that while you are constantly talked to in Spanish and a woman is walking after the group making sure you follow and speed..

Well worth the visit. Very well done. Parking on the side streets. Go early to avoid the summer crowds. Wear a hat to walk around the area.

If you like history or have interest in sailing ships then this is a good place to visit. The ship is seen through a guided group tour, details given at each major location of the ship (Spanish). Cost for foreigners is higher but by an inconsequential amount. I also received a booklet that details the ship and its history in English, though I don't know if that is normal procedure. Photos allowed without flash - ceilings are low of you're tall.

Interesting presentation on the War of the Pacific and the heroic stand taken by Esmeralda's captain Auturo Prat and its crew when heavily out matched and gunned.

If you are remotely interested in history, this is a nice activity. Be warned: tix are limited so make a reservation online or come with a plan B.

They start selling tix for PM tours at 13:50. You can’t buy onsite before that.
