Ushuaia Prison Museum, Maritime Museum and The End of the World Museum
The Prison Museum is a part of the refurbished military prison complex that began construction in the early 1900s.
The museum has on display many prison cells and artifacts that show the harsh environment endured by some of Argentina’s most hardened criminals as well as those who simply fell out of favor with the country’s political powers of their day.
The Maritime Museum is also located in the old and infamous military prison on the grounds of the former Presidio de Ushuaia. The museum displays a number of exhibits that tell the story of Ushuaia and its relationship to the surrounding islands and the sea. The museum is supported in large part by the town and the Argentine Navy.
The End of the World Museum traces the heritage and history of Ushuaia and the surrounding region beginning with the indigenous people and continuing trough the first European explorers, adventures and settlers.
