Museo del Desembarco, Puerto Madryn

(2.5/5 based on 100 reviews on the web)
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.

  • I came across with this Museum of chance. Although it is small, is very neat, and there are thousands of things to see and read. I'm from capital and had no idea of the existence of a Welsh colony in Madryn. I liked very much, so I recommend.
