Museo Marítimo y del Presidio
The Museo Marítimo y del Presidio is housed in a former penitentiary, which was built by prisoners at the very start of the 20C. Several museums in one await you here. The Museo Marítimo charts the history of Tierra del Fuego and the evolution of shipbuilding. The very eclectic Museo del Presidio sheds light on what life behind bars was like here and the conquest of the Antarctic, as well as presenting a very fine collection of marinescapes. A museum that is not to be missed.
