Nao Victoria - Museum Puerto San Julián - Argentina

Down on the seafront, an old sailing ship has washed ashore—or so it seems. This is a life-size replica of the Nao Victoria, the only ship of Magellan’s daring journey around the world that survived. The boat is an open-air museum that immerses visitors into the events of those four months Magellan and his crew spent in this bay. The history and daily life aboard are told through life-size mannequins and sound effects, recreating the atmosphere of that time. Also on display are replicas of navegation instruments of the period.
