Museo de Maquetas Mundo Yámana
While both the Museo del Fin del Mundo and Museo Marítimo do a creditable job on Tierra del Fuego’s indigenous heritage, this small private museum (Rivadavia 56, tel. 02901/42-2874, mundoyamana [at] infovia [dot] com [dot] ar, 10 a.m.–8 p.m. daily, US$4 adults, US$2 students and retired people, free for children under age 13) consists of skillfully assembled dioramas of pre-European life along the Beagle Channel, at a scale of 1:15.
It also includes cartographic representations of the Yámana and their neighbors, interpretations of the European impact, and panels of historical photographs. The staff speak fluent English.
