Museo Maritime de Ushuaia, ARGENTINA
Despite being the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia bears a unique history of its own. Capital of Tierra del Fuego, province of Argentina; Ushuaia is populated with an estimated one hundred thousand of downright neighborly Argentineans.
My arrival during summer in Ushuaia was welcomed by cooling temperature around 5 to 10 degree Celsius and an ear-popping crowd. As it is the nearest port to Antarctica and key access point to the southern regions, Ushuaia often packed with tourists from all over especially Spain and Chile. It is also a norm here to sight carefree yet highly equipped research team members hanging around the city. Donning the ice capped mountain background; Ushuaia releases a special mysterious attraction which was definitely worth spending over a week of my journey here.
Apart from the conventional places to go such as casinos, hotels, motels, pubs and restaurants; one spot was highly recommended for all history lovers – the Museo Maritime de Ushuaia (Maritime Museum of Ushuaia). Situated at a stone throw away from the city, Museo Maritime de Ushuaia is converted from the century old Ushuaia prison.
