Visitors to this venue will get deep into the life of the first dwellers, the European explorers and the intrepid pirates at the halls of this museum and through the different very realistic scenes on display.
The City of Ushuaia has a cultural space where the early days of this distant and inhospitable land are revived. It is called Fuegian History Theme Gallery.
We paid a visit to this venue and, as we moved through each of its spaces, we imagined how the former dwellers used to live and survive. A set of 36 scenes and 120 life-size figures reproduce their aspect, habitat and belongings of these peoples in chronological order. The characters are so well managed that they seem real.
Little by little, we discovered the various Yamana, Selknam, Ona and Haush native societies and their adaptation to the harshness of the weather. We could also appreciate those who landed on this territory years later after challenging the dangerous seas. It is evident that a great deal of knowledge, research and patience were necessary to manage such an accurate set of scenes that give precise proof of so many well-kept secrets.
We were amazed by some written and oral records that let us learn about incredible stories exposed by the Scotsman Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922), among others. These people did not even imagine how interesting the material they left for the generations to come would turn out to be.
