Museo del Fin del Mundo, Ushuaia

3.2
#10 of 47 in Museums in Patagonia
In the world's southernmost city, Museo del Fin del Mundo was founded in 1979 to preserve and present the natural and social history of the region. In the first hall, you'll find the large figurehead from the Duchess of Albany, a British vessel shipwrecked nearby in 1893. Elsewhere, artifacts related to the indigenous population are neatly displayed and explained, detailing the progress of native peoples over the course of some 8,000 years.

  • It is worth clarifying that this venue, also called Territorial Museum, is part of the Museum of the end of the world together with the Museum that operates in the old State House, located two blocks away. It is small but very interesting. The care staff is extremely friendly and well prepared. Momentarily do not charge entry, I hope when they do it is quite accessible for the public in general.

  • Find various things, such as stuffed animals and the indigenous people of this land. Nature and animals just to tend to the eye, but the history of indigenous peoples, such as want to keep pressing part was the best.

  • Not bad. If you have some time to kill it's a good place to visit. It has an unexpected good bird specimen collection which includes the land, coastal, ocean, mountain and tropical birds - surprisingly good
  • Not bad if you've got some time to kill but not what I would call a must-see, if your time in Ushuaia is limited then probably skip it. Was baffled to find a stuffed example of castor canadensis but later learned the story of why they're in the neighbourhood and what troublemakers they've been, giving me a bizarre feeling of Canadian patriotism...
  • a little bit of history from the pionners of patagonia
  • Good museum! Lot of birds and history!
  • History comes to life while on the old part of the museum.

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.
