We took an afternoon drive and were excited to discover this informative and significant destination. I learnt about the history of formation and discovery of The Strait of Magellan. Great facilities, very helpful staff, interpretive displays in Spanish and English, and a beautiful coastal walk.
The reconstruction takes you back 150 years to allow your imagination to run and grasp what life must have been at the fort. The walking tours are offered in Spanish several times per day and in English from time to time. Fear not English only speakers, the exhibits inside the buildings are in both languages. After the Fort, stop at... 更多
I'm rating this Excellent even though as noted in other reviews the new museum and gift shop are not totally open. The park and fort are both worth the short drive out of Punta Arenas. If you want to get out of the city for one day this is a great choice.
We enjoyed a walk through the fort and around the point. Even saw a Chilean dolphin. The museum is new and very nice. Some of the exhibits had yet to be installed. They are I'm the process of building kiosks, etc, so getting in is a bit cumbersome.

The interperative centre is ultra modern, but the lighting is so moody that many information plaques are unreadable, and some displays are at a height that makes it nexessary for... 更多
This historic park is a a nice 45 minute drive from Punta Arenas and makes for a great day trip. The settler buildings are well maintained and there is a good gift shop and cafe. There are great views of the Straits of Magellan and you can walk down and explore the tide-pools along the rocky shore. Well worth the... 更多
Fort Bulnes is a historic fort built on a point that juts out into the Straits of Magellan. Dating back to the 1800s, it's been restored a number of times, but is now part of a newly opened state park. The visitors' center houses exhibits on the area, and had just opened a few weeks prior to my visit. While... 更多
There is not a lot to do in Punta Arenas. This half-day trip is really for folks who have too much time in town. The museum is unfinished, half of the rooms are empty, and the rest is childish. You will learn more in Wikipedia. The Fort reconstruction is at a better level, but in the end, it is not... 更多
