Reopened after the injection of US$ 1.5 million, the southernmost museum in the world is in Puerto Williams and preserves the legacy of the anthropologist and priest of Austrian origin who worked with people of the Yagán and Selknam ethnic groups between 1918 and 1924. The facility offers the best ethnographic synthesis on “The Indians of Tierra del Fuego,” as he was to call the work published in 1974 that took him over 40 years to write, in which he narrates the life and cruel extinction of these peoples.
