Nautical, Navy, Antarctica and Prison Museum
The Nautical, Navy, Antarctica and Prison Museum, too long to say, but the former prison gives place for this many exhibitions. Sad or not, the criminals played an important role in the history of Ushuaia; those who were expelled from the northern regions of the country around 1900. The first group of prisoners, 14 persons arrived in January of 1896 with the 1st of May ship. Later more criminals arrived - who were convicted either for a long time or even had a lifelong sentence. The prisoners built up the railway and did most of the city constructions. In 1947 the president decided to close the prison and the reconstruction, change of the city started in 1950.

The Yámana natives. Since their diet consisted primarily meat and proteins plus they covered their body with the fat of the seals, they didn't use any clothes except the waistcloth.

Standing on that very windy island and imagine the even colder winters...they had a stamina for sure.
