It has some posts with English explanations but it all about human, native tribes and later invaders from Europe, but little about the nature of this land.

Interesting bird exhibits. Informative history about the region. Close to town and easy to spend an hour browsing.

This is a simple and straightforward museum which tells an important story about the peoples, fauna and flora of the area. This museum is now an even more important local history resource in the light of the recent closure of the Yamana Museum.

This museum had a variety of exhibits: information about the city, the indigenous people, and the animal life of the region. It's small, but contains lots of details.

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...More
