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

Expensive for what it offers (AR $90). You are asked to leave your backpack but the museum is not responsible for your values (who is then?). Museum about Ushuaia and the region of Tierra del Fuego, consists of two buildings in diferent points of the Maipu Av. Both very very small, the first one explains shortly the history of the...

LOuPro has mistakenly written his review on the Maritime and Prison Museum on St Martin. Fin del Mundo is a very small museum on Maipu which is the waterfront road . The fact is that there is only one floor. The exhibitions are interesting and informative and we enjoyed the models of various birds but were disappointed when we soon... More

We had difficulty finding this museum. It is on the east side of the town ( away from the airport) and it is not only about the Ushaia as a Penal Colony. Do not be misled by the building on San Martin which has effigies of prisoners hanging out of the windows, although there is a museum upstairs in the... More
