There are a large number of exhibitions to see and they were all interesting, particularly if you have an interest in maritime and exploration history. The explanations in English were good and it was informative to visit the prison blocks and cells, many of which...More

A well maintained and informative visit plus art gallery with a local curiosity store. Provides a clear perspective on the local and explorer historical events.

This museum is actually several collections in one complex. The building is the former jail, which was really a penal colony, and one wing is preserved in the dreary, chilly (in mid-summer!) circumstances under which the prisoners lived. Another wing is a ship museum, with...More

Prisoners are very important in Ushuaia's history; they constructed many buildings needed in Ushuaia, at the time. The guided tour lasts 45 minutes at 3 -4 times every day, although the Presidio can be visited on your own and they offer a recording audio and...More
