The End of the World Museum-Museo del Fin del Mundo, Ushuaia

3.2
#10 of 48 in Museums in Patagonia
In the world's southernmost city, The End of the World Museum-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. Plan my day in Ushuaia using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • a tiny Museum nice and for the agreements of the South, through the library by entering at the right, it's free and full of books

  • This museum is located in the former Government House of Ushuaia. It's small, but interesting for those who want to learn a bit of local history. There are maps, pictures of native tribes, stuffed animals and other. Admission to MERCOSUR costs 130 pesos (R $26.00), but you can visit 2 museums and Government House. Open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 at 5:00 pm and is closed on Sundays.

  • Malisimo! Hopefully it gives for 5 minutes... or as an excuse to walk up there. Expect much but much more than the "Museum of the end of the world". Good, now do not charge entry but serious theft. With few attractions that exist in the city surroundings an investment more large to really develop a Museum of the end of the world... Governor to invest! It is the same case of the chairlift of glacier Martial... abandoned... in the end. If you want to walk a lap pegate, but Discovery Channel puts in the hotel and safe it is better...

  • 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...

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.
