We visited the Museo Corbeta Esmeralda and we throughly enjoyed our tour. The tour guides were so kind and thoughtful by giving us literature in English. This Museo is an absolutely must see when in Iquique. Well worth the time and money. Well done Chile!!!

The ship has been extremely well maintained and the tour guide details almost everything and answers all questions. My guide did not speak English, so either bring a friend or just nod and smile during the tour if you don't speak Spanish.

Is an important place if you like history and ships. For most of chileans, and specially for the people of Iquique, this place is like the Arizona ship for americans (1941).

They only allow a certain number of people at a time and the wait is only worth it if you're into ships.

I believe good museums become excellent museums when they realize they should cater to as many different languages as they can. FRANKLY speaking I do not think the whole story is told about the Esmeralda and much more should be said about the equally famous...More
