Museo Maritimo Y Del Presidio, Ushuaia Reviews

  • A must seen to understand the history of the area. There is an option for 400 pesos of seeing all the museum's (there are together there). Once that you are there, it feels that you've travelled back in time 100 years (that was my feeling anyway). There is WiFi available (not too good but nice to have it) and also an overpriced gift shop inside. Nice staff and a free guide tour at 11 am and some other time I've forgotten. I recommend it.

  • Interesting. Some displays a bit dated. The building is impressive The art gallery when we were there was disappointing Had a fabulous tour guide Horacio was over and above exceptional

  • The Maritime Museum of Ushuaia is located in the building of the former Prison of Ushuaia (or Re-offenders Prison of Tierra del Fuego). The building of the prison, which was closed down in 1947, was declared a National Historic Monument by the National Congress in April 1997. Nowadays, the Argentine Navy and the Maritime Museum of Ushuaia are recovering its facilities for visitors. This Web site provides some information about its history. The Maritime Museum of Ushuaia is run by a non-profit Civil Association having no funding from national or provincial governments. This means that the improvements made on the historic building, the salaries, the utilities bills and any other works are funded by the entrance ticket and the profits from the selling of books and souvenirs In this historic building, the Director Lic. Carlos Pedro Vairo, supported by the Civil Association, created the Maritime Museum of Ushuaia, the Prison Museum, the Antarctic Museum José María Sobral, and the Marine Art Museum of Ushuaia. All of them as a whole create a live museum where you can find a variety of features including naval models collections, the history of the discovery of Antarctica and several other aspects such as southern fauna, gold seekers, first settlers, life in the prison and, most important of all – the expeditions and research under development.

  • Very good museum! Was a bit scared by the high price though I'm suggesting not to miss the place if you are in town. On top of the jail system and the life within there are sections dedicated to the town history and immigrating which I found revealing. A couple of art gallery and installation too which I believe will change constantly. Definitely be aware of the extremely overpriced gift shop.

  • The maritime museum and the presidio are well worth a visit while in Ushuaia. The presidio has quite a story to tell. It was reopened as a museum relatively recently. Its history as a prisioners is well told plus they make it interesting with tales of some of the notorious prisioners who served time in this remote, cold, forebidding facility.
