This is a small museum that covers several aspects of Ushuaia. It is close to the port and the second museum we visited in Ushuaia. From our perspective it is not a must see. If you are looking for a quick summary, this museum would be suitable.

A lot of exhibits in the old jail and historic information about the city.Ticket is not cheap and hope it has more multimedia or interactive ones later.

A gathering of artifacts from early inhabitants(fascinating for bare feet and little warm covering in such a cold and inhospitable place) and also whaling and antarctic explorers.Learn about early sailing ships in dangerous seas ans Charles Darwin and his famous ship the beagle for which the beagle channel is named.

Is a very small place but rich in information. We waited 5 minutes for the guided visit and it was very interesting, the guide was very passionate and full of information, otherwise it wouldn't have been worth it. So wait for the talk!

If you're visiting Ushuaia by cruise ship, this museum is very close to the port. It is a bit pricey for admission and they would only accept Argentinian pesos, but since it's unlikely that we'll ever get back there it was worth a visit. It's kind of an unusual museum, part maritime museum and part prison museum. The building's architecture... More

One can experience the life of the early settlers of the area and how they lived. It is difficult to overlook that one is near the tip of South America as the place is promoted as being at the end of the world

This museum is expensive for what it is, just a couple of rooms with the same information as is displayed better in the Yamana and old prison museums. If you like stuffed birds there is a room full of them here.

Ushuaia doesnt seem to have much and is not an attractive town. The museum too is OK but not great. If there is a little time to spend in Ushuaia before boarding a ship one could go to this museum . One will get something out of it but that s about it .
