It has over 3.000 volumes which cover history, geography, natural science and a variety of different sciences. All these are at the disposal of students, scientists and anyone interested in reading about the different mysteries that surround Tierra del Fuego. The oldest volumes are carefully preserved and are not permitted out of the Museum. Many of these books are in the HANIS Association Library in the Museum, and the association is in touch with diverse institutions of the Patagonian region, including "San Juan Bosco" University.
