  • It is worth stopping by this Museum. It is interactive, didactic and special to go with children and learn the history of Ushuaia from another perspective. We loved it! They are different seasons on 2 floors with dolls in life size that represent different eras. In some they allow you to approach and take pictures as part of the station. Each visitor is given a pair of headphones with an individual guide that relates what is observed in each station. At the end they screen a 15/20 minute video that summarizes the above. On the 3rd floor there is a confectionery and next to the museum a very complete place of memories with access to a park where there are also facilities to take funny photographs. Worth a place to stay for this place!! More than recommended

  • It's a bit expensive but really worth it. The audio guide (which you can choose between a few languages) tells the story of the region's native people, of the navigators that visited or settled in Ushuaia and the town's history. You can interact with the exhibition to take pictures in the scenes. If you are not a fan of history listening to the whole audio guide can get a bit boring, but you can still appreciate the museum's wax figures and scenes.
  • Looks entertaining from the outside; we didn't go in as it seemed completely tacky :-) and also because we by definition avoid tourist traps. But if you're into this kind of thing, it certainly looked interesting!
