    Historic building, located in Maipu, tells the story of politics in the region of Tierra del Fuego, and the best, for free.

    The Museum is very small, a few rooms and without much of a connection between them. For example: one with pictures of the evolution of the city, a furniture of the Legislative Assembly, one on porcelain articles retrieval of shipwrecks and another about the advancement of cartography of the region (interesting to see how they were able to get so close that long ago and how evolved). Missing information in English (Nothing in Portuguese). Go only if you have spare time. When I got the entry was released for free.

    To visit Ushuaia is a must visit the museums of the city. And this is one of them. It is located in a historic mansion on Avenue of the Beagle Channel (at Bay), is small, interesting and practical. Shows a little of the culture of the previous centuries. When entering the Museum world's end you win the pass for the historical Museum. Legal (2 x 1)

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.
