Very small museum that is a little pricey with not a real lot to see, I think some people are getting the end of the world museum mixed up with the maritime one(ex prison) that is very much worth visiting. As for this one if wanting something to do to then visit, otherwise give it a miss nothing here is... More

I slowly walked inside this small museum and was amazing how Yamana, ancient people of Tierra del Fuego, thrived and survived in rough weather 12,000 years ago. I was sorry that their descendants died out completely as Europeans intruded almost 180 years ago. A senior lady at the museum was very friendly and lovely. It a place I strongly recommend.

Great place to spend at least half of a day to read and explore the history on the City of Ushuaia and it's founders.

Man on front desk was nice. Very few exhibits and crazy expensive for what it is. You can cover the whole room in 30 mins. Definitely not for kids

I can't even begin to explain what a waste of time and money this museum was. It was small and nothing that you couldn't see from just looking online - and even that would be a waste. Just horrible! I'm still mad at myself for wasting my free morning walking to this dump and spending much too much money to... More

This museum coupled with the Territorial museum is both in English and Spanish. The old parliament house exhibits the furniture they used as well as lots of photographs detailing the history of Ushuaia. Very interesting.

Some great pictures and and interesting building and worth a few minutes to look around. However it would have been helped by sub titles in English rather than all in Spanish

Walking back from the Museo Maritimo (where my Chilean pesos were not accepted for entrance fee) to my cruise ship docked at the port, I noticed these outside exhibits. I visited them and took pictures (see attached pictures). I did not know the name of this museum until now that I was reviewing my pictures taken during my short visit... More

Extremely expensive, bored and bad maintained. Please do not go there, do not waste their money and time, you have several options in this beautiful city!

There is a small section of this museum that is outdoors and free -it is by far the best part. It has a cannon from a shipwreck, two old gravestones, a mining cart and ox cart which are interesting. Otherwise inside it rehashes in less detail things from the Yamana museum about the indigenous people. It even shows the same... More
