A lot of information about Ushuaia's history. The can spend an hour or a day depending on how much information you want to take in. Well worth the trip.

This is an interesting place to spend a few hours immersed in the history and the lives of the people who made Ushuaia a fascinating city at the end of the world. The photos provide a rich history of the maritime life of Ushuaia and there are many other interesting galleries that shed light on the city's past and present.
