Naval and Maritime Museum

Map
45 Paseo 21 de Mayo, Valparaiso,

See relics of Chile's maritime heritage: there's a room dedicated to Bernardo O'Higgins, the principal leader in Chile's fight for independence, and founder of the navy; and sections of the Esmeralda, the infamous wooden galleon that stood up to Peru's iron battleships in the War of the Pacific (look for a replica, often docked in Valparaíso's harbor).
