Despite the catchy name, the museum has relatively little to offer beyond some local natural history and a bit about the colonial period. The building is impressive, and since it is right on the waterfront, handy to visit.

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.

The best thing about this museum is the building, apart from that there was very little to see and we had to pay. No museum in Ushuaia, despite publicity to the contrary , is free.

This is a small but interesting - from a local history point of view. Some interesting artifacts and information pertaining to the indigenous population and the settlement by white missionaries and naval expeditions. The information provided is in Spanish with an English translation - making it much easier to understand. There is a TV displaying series of photograms which provide... More

There is something for everyone in this eclectic museum complex. My favorites were the rare old photos of Ushuaia's original native inhabitants, now long gone, and the many beautifully-crafted model ships. There's also an art gallery, and a preserved section of the colonial prison that was once in this building complex. The gift shop has some very nice crafts items.

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 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.
