  • Museum with good objects but not really telling a story. Focusing on few men whom were leaders in wars. OK museum if you need to kill time.

  • This is a much better museum than I expected. There are tons of artifacts and exhibits, particularly several noteworthy objects related to Chilean national heroes and famous battles. The museum itself is in a beautiful large building with an inner courtyard. Lots of curious objects like WWI era torpedos and bombs, a display of marine signal flags, and an exhibit on Chilean territories of Antarctica.
