  • This museum counts more political history of Ushuaia. It also has the latest part of the local culture and the inmates. The issue of the boat who allegedly tipped off by business issues etc. Very interesting to understand where Ushuaia was inserted in the panorama. When you buy a ticket to the Museum of the end of the world, you will gain entrance to this museum as well (and vice versa)

  • It is one of the two buildings where the historical Museum operates. Interesting to devote a little time to travel around the city.
