Not sure what a previous review was saying about cost. Entry was free. This is well preserved and tells the history of one wealthy family. It also had interesting history about the Indians and has translations in English. Well worth a visit to understand a...More

Sumptuous late 18th century home you would envision finding in London or Paris. European craftsmanship and materials make this Palacio a worthwhile visit. Nominal fee gets you in for a walkabout the home and then you can enjoy a coffee, tea or lunch in the...More

This museum is a fine example of its era and no charge to visit. The staff give you over-socks for your shoes so as to not damage the floor.

You come here to have a drink in the bar, to see the wonderful watercolors of moments in Shackleton's Journey. We had lunch which was fine but slow. Being in the place where he stayed and planned his return to Elephant Island is a lot...More

Definitely worth visiting while in the central area of Punta Arenas. The ornate flooring details and the walls and ceiling designs are very intriguing. The open ceiling to the floor above is very captivating. Plaza de Armas and its Monumento a Hernando de Magallanes are...More
