  • Pretty expensive, especially for Argentines. The place is very good, very well explained stories.

  • A place to visit if you like to learn about the history of Ushuaia in a way amena.la possibility of listening to the story individually is very interesting, since one can pause it and start again when desired. It's located in the center of town, a nice experience.

  • 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!
