  • This small museum is located next to the Museum of the end of the world and you can see some of the culture and history of the Yámana people. Open daily from 12:00 to 7:00 pm.

  • Too bad a very interesting Museum is closed. It is good to know the history of the old tribes of Tierra del Fuego to go there. In the region there are many books about them and it is good to know its history.

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.
