#10 of 14 in Museums in Province of Chubut
Discover more about the history of Patagonia's first colonial settlers at Museo del Desembarco, dedicated to the Welsh immigrants who landed in the region in 1865. These initial 153 men, women, and children built settlements as they moved; today, the museum stands on one of those sites. As you tour the collection, pay special attention to the boarding list of the Velero Mimosa, the boat used for the expedition, as well as details on the reasons for this migration and how many ultimately survived the gruelling trip.

  • Located in the place where it landed the Welsh when they arrived in Chubut. Although it's not very big it has elements that are part of the history of the Welsh colonization, of economic activity prior to that fact (when the wreck American Woods can see when it was dedicated to the hunting of seals). There is a pouch of a midwife used at this time. The entrance is almost symbolic. The guide was excellent. Puts you desire and effort.
