I don´t like museums and even less boats. But this museums is really nice! It`s located at the seaside and worth a visit.
It`s the real model of the ship which first did the Strait of Magallan and you can see how they lived and worked. Unimaginable!
You can also lay down in a hammock like the sailors did lower deck...

“Trip back in history.”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

Here is an authentic replica of a 500 year old ship. The original was in Magellan's group of 5 and it was the only one that completed the 3 year trip around the world. To look at it, so small, I would not have taken a ride in it across Lake Mead let alone the oceans of the world.
