    With few rooms, it is an interesting Museum for lovers of history, with constant audiovisual samples, photos, and a quick tour of the geographical evolution, fauna, the first settlers and the clash of native peoples with the Europeans on the island of Tierra del Fuego. It is free of charge.

    It is cute, small. It walked with some friends on a cloudy day and we did it so fast but it was interesting. It has variety of exposed animals and tells the story of the usuhaia.

    Step to reach the city for knowing how and why the city of Ushuaia is formed. Do the guided tour, in addition to the information provided by you, take you to the reconstruction of the lighthouse of San Juan of rescue that is beautiful.

    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.
