Antigua Casa Beban, Ushuaia

3.1
#18 of 47 in Museums in Patagonia
One of the first houses in the city of Ushuaia, Antigua Casa Beban now serves as a cultural center and a place to learn about the history of this resort town. The former residence of the Beban family, it was donated to the city in the 1980s to avoid demolition. Step inside to view a small collection of family photos capturing bygone eras, as well as an art exhibit. Walk further into the house to find the small cafe nestled within and take a break with a snack and a hot drink. To visit Antigua Casa Beban on your trip to Ushuaia, use our Ushuaia vacation builder.

    It is free, it is worthwhile to see the House, the furniture, the photo shows. It takes a few minutes, you can take something, has bathrooms, and outside there is a beautiful roundabout so that if you go as a couple, take a few moments looking at the sea.

    The House drink is a historic landmark and its construction is of stunning beauty. The condition is excellent. Located on the waterfront stands out since it is the central element in a square. a gem in ushuaia

    We went expecting to see a Museum in, but the Museum is not inside the House, but it is the House. A magnificent architectural work, brought and assembled as if it were a toy, chosen by catalogue by more wealthy family of the place.

Where to stay in Ushuaia

Despite its nickname, Ushuaia is certainly not the end of the world when it comes to finding comfortable lodgings--as long as you plan ahead and reserve your room in advance. Hotels and hostels are equally crowded here during the peak season (October to March), so it's advisable to arrive with a solid reservation in hand. If you choose to visit during the winter (June to mid-September), expect to find many establishments closed for the season.
