Ushuaia Ushuaia Prison Museum Excursion Reviews

Not only does the prison museum allow you to see the actual cells of the prisoners who were housed here through 1947, a couple of them have been left intact with the last of the miscreants' belongings still visible.
Good insight into ordeals faced by prisoners and even prison staff.

Good insight into ordeals faced by prisoners and even prison staff. Could have used a bit more time there before being whisked off to airport

Lots and lots of craft items and souvenirs for sale. Each former jail cell is a different shop. A visit to the Southern most province of Argentina is very chilly even when it is their summer. It is also the southern end of the snow capped Andes Mountains which provide a beautiful backdrop for this small port city. The city has little to offer to see beyond their local architecture which are small frame or concrete block homes with steep sloped corrugated steel roofs. The main reason to come to this area is to visit Tierra del Fuego National Park by traveling through it on replicas of the prison train which provides a narration in 3-languages; Portuguese, Spanish and English. They are stunning views of the mountains, lakes, streams, foliage and wild life. We saw several red foxes along the way and they had no fear of humans or vehicles. While at the park it is a must to visit the southern most post office in the world and send postcards from there with their special markings. Read Less
