An annex of the Museo del Fin del Mundo, this is the old government house, and the main features of interest are the old legislative meeting room and the collection of maps of Tierra Del Fuego.

Had to pay for the entry for this museum which only had 2 rooms. Very disappointing plus no evplanations in English, only Spanish. No concessions for European pensioners!!

Lots of interesting photos and histories here plus a few artifacts - like the old shopping center token slot machine! 30 minutes should be enough time to spend here. Staff was helpful. Cost minimal. Your ticket (10 pesos) gets you access to the Maritime museum...More

This was an average museum with basic displays in general. The wildlife display was good. Our ticket from the maritime museum also allowed us in to this museum. One plus was the diplays were also in English.
