We only had a short amount of time but it was interesting. There was a poster exhibition of a shipwreck of a tourist ship about 100 years ago that was fascinating--all saved except the Captain, who is thought to have intentionally gone down with the ship. There are two Fin del Mundo Museums, both on the same block, and I can't remember which one had this exhibit, but one entry fee covers both so check them out!

Good place to get information and learn about Ushuaia and the surrounding area. It is split between two small buildings, and you can only buy tickets in one, which makes it a bit inconvenient, but it's worth a visit.

We stopped at the Maritime Museum and were shocked at the price. We wanted a little bit of history about the area, and that museum was all or nothing.

This one is relatively small, but admission covers two buildings so to me it was worth it. Interesting stories and exhibits, just the size I was looking for. Most of the information is in both English and Spanish.

Nice little museum. We went on an overcast, nasty morning and it was something nice to do until the weather turned. The museum is quite good for how small it is.

There is a small entrance fee but worth it.There are many interesting displays ranging from hunting tolls to the figurehead of the HMS Duchess of Albany which was wrecked off the coast in the late 19th century.

.......then this is a pretty good place to do it. Lots of exhibits and displays that focus on the indigenous people of the area. Not as flashy as many other museums, but kinda neat nevertheless.

The old mueum is down the street from the newer larger building. Both have great exhibits of the life of the indigenous peoples prior to and after contact by Europeans. Their tools and construction abilities always surprise after the "uncivilized, etc" comments made by thier over-takers. One thing that amazed me was how they could wear so little and stay warm. Their shelters were sticks and twigs, although they did utilize the skins for warmth and clothing as well. Very fine, well organized exhibits.
