Very close to Plaza de Mayo, less than 10 min walk. There is a $10 Argentinean peso fee for entering the museum. They really tried to preserve all the small details on board from the sailors rooms, clothing/uniforms, maps of previous voyages, weaponry. Lots if interesting historical facts and photos.

A older sailing ship worth visiting. The entrance fee was exceptionally low. It is full of historical items with explanations in Spanish and English. You need an hour to do your tour justice.

Walked along the spectacular waterfront and enjoyed all the wonderful sites. There are a number of museum ships which are worth a visit and this is one. It is well worth strolling the waterfront and if you are lucky you will see the road bridge open as we did.

Fairly interesting even if you are not a big sailing buff. 280 foot sailing ship that has trained thousands of Argentine sailors and in its prime boasted 33 sails and a crew of 300. Cabins well restored and give a glimpse at life in the Argentine navy in the 1890s. Free on Mondays and Wednesdays

Wow what a ship and you can get right up close to the ship, it was great to see all the sailors on board getting the ship ready to sail.

This ship gives a sweet glimpse into the past. I can't say that it's all that different from other older ships we have toured, but all does seem well laid out for kids to learn from and enjoy.

We were able to viee this vessel from the river while on a touring boat. The guide told us that it is part of the Argentine Navy, used for training.

This is a very nice historical save-set up...viva la Buenos Aires. There is an ever-present line for photo taking onboard bow with the Women's Bridge as backdrop...the girls love it (hint to guys!). And, otherwise a nice backdrop for local highrise buildings as well.

Only 30 pesos to visit and the Naval officers are very friendly. Great photo op and a good historical walk-through of Argentina.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
