Museo del Fin del Mundo (End of the World Museum)
Museo del Fin del Mundo (End of the World Museum) Review
At the Museo del Fin del Mundo you can see a large taxidermied condor and other native birds, indigenous artifacts, maritime instruments, a reconstruction of an old Patagonian general store, and such seafaring-related objects as an impressive mermaid figurehead taken from the bowsprit of a galleon. There are also photographs and histories of El Presidio's original inmates, such as Simon Radowitzky, a Russian immigrant anarchist who received a life sentence for killing an Argentine police colonel. The museum is split across two buildings—the first, and original, is in the 1905 residence of a Fuegonian governor at Maipu 173. The newest museum building, opened in 2008, is farther down the road at Maipu 465, where you can see extended exhibitions of the same style.
