Specialty Museum Museum
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. Take a look at our Puerto Madryn holiday planner to schedule your visit to Museo del Desembarco and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
