An honest and well laid out museum enough to while away an hour or more looking at the multi lingual exhibits. Not expensive and quite easy to find

A nice museum about the native inhabitants and their lives. Also very cheap at only 1000 pesos, well worth the stop if you have a day in Puerto Natales and not traveling to the park.

This museum provided an very good overview of the native inhabitants of the region, along with historical information about non-native settlements. it was a great 1 hour stop on a rainy day in town.

This Museum on the small side gives equal time to the indigenous history with well laid out displays containing excellent photography and tools. It was a great mid day activity.

Only $1.000 each for foreigners, informative static displays in Spanish, most with English translations. Gives a good understanding of the history of the area but shies away from the explaining the fate of the indigenous people in any detail.

Interesting museum about the prehistory and history about Pto Natales and its natives. Well done and most of it is in English. Worth the 1000 pesos!

For its size, this is a great museum with plenty of artifacts and an easy-to-follow timeline of the history of the Natives. Also a lot of interesting details about the settlers and early life in Puerto Natales.

The entrance fee is 1000ps, less than $2USD, and well worth it. It's small, but beautifully done. Information is on both Spanish and English. A must do, plan for about an hour to view the artifacts and read the descriptions.
