End of the World Museum (Museo del Fin del Mundo)

Celebrate your visit to the world’s southernmost city by exploring the Museo del Fin del Mundo.

The museum focuses on Ushuaia’s natural and indigenous history, including a menagerie of stuffed animals and the tools used to hunt them.

The collection is displayed in a series of interconnecting rooms, starting off with travelers and ethnography, including mementos of past visitors such as the shipwrecked figurehead of the HMS Duchess of Albany, which came to grief off the coast of Tierra del Fuego in 1893.

The grocery store exhibit is a hit with kids of all ages, displaying the essential shopping items of Ushuaia’s far-flung citizens in times gone by.

Seabirds like albatrosses and petrels are featured in the Birds of Fire room, along with penguins, shorebirds, ducks, swans, flamingos and waterfowl.

The final exhibit displays the safes, security doors, sturdy furniture and log books of Argentina’s National Bank.

Practical Info

The Museo del Fin del Mundo is on Ushuaia’s main street overlooking the waterfront, Av Maipu, just a short walk from the pier.

The entry fee also gives you admission to the former Government House, nearby at Av Maipu 465.
