  • A thematic gallery located on the main street; excellent quality and attention (with audio guide in the whole journey) to get to know the history of Tierra del Fuego. After the visit, there is a confectionery from where you have a spectacular view of the Bay and very good service.

  • I loved it. It is very entertaining and dynamic. It is dramatically marked, includes audio guide with the cost of entry, and representations are very educational. I recommend it completely since the history of this city is very interesting.

  • I came to the Museum almost by chance, he had only heard a recommendation and left highly surprised. The sculptures are great and very well done, very realistic; the atmosphere, light, everything makes one want to get stuck nothing more than watching the scene, very well represented. The audios that travel is made are clear, concise and brief enough not to lose interest in the subject. It is a place that that should go without a doubt if you are interested in history; one of the best museums I've visited, is not a compilation of elements in windows.

  • Nothing to envy to reach similar international excellent choice for indoors. Visit self-guided through players mp3 portable van carried visitors through the different rooms with statues investiments and scenes that show from the customs of the indigenous peoples of tierra del fuego, passing by the main settlers and characters historic in the history of the place (Beagle, Darwin, Fitz Roy, the shipwrecked, prisoners, etc) interesting to some rooms / samples to "admission" to the same with care, to be closer statues (thing that made infinitely more enjoyable visit with our little of year and 4 months, that it is probable that will annoy soon) very interesting. One of the attractions forced to perform under roof (apart from the visit to the prison)
