A review of the museum including much more, including the town! I stopped by, the museum, following an excellent lunch down the street. The staff at the museum was very courteous and helpful, as the young people spoke English. The Restaurant, Villa Julia, is a short walk, in a historic building on the corner, So, a museum, a lunch and... More

It is a large museum. Read up on the history before you go to better enjoy the exhibits. Sadly we could have done with another hour, there are many ship models from the beginning of the Argentine Navy as well as armaments and more to see outside.

This museum is clearly old school and honestly, it is a bit old. If one would be picky, one would spot the paint has faded, broken exhibition materials but then again: you paid less than a dollar (hum, at the blue rate). And that's all the charm. I love the idea of a spotless navy uniform dressed ward at the... More

Visited with my 18 yr old grandson. The only disadvantage is that there are no explanations in English. I was told there was an English speaking translator/guide on the weekends in the afternoon. Exhibits are varied and quite well laid out. By Argentine standards, it is very well done. Clean and well lit. The exhibition continues outside. Will definitely return... More

This museum has an extensive collection of detailed ship models from all eras and it was interesting to consider the evolution of ship design in that context. There was also a ton of captain's chests and ship furniture.

I had the chance to know about this beautiful museum, my children enjoyed so much as we did. Scale boats of all times so carefully constructed and maintained is almost a dream for kids and curious fathers; some real size planes, missiles, mines and torpedoes (a real plus). Higly recommende, specially when the workshops are available.

A visit to this museum is a great value for just 10 pesos. It is full of handsome, beautifully constructed models of navy ships from historic galleons to modern war ships. It also has memorabilia, including things from the first AR exploration of Antarctica, and more modern guns. My husband, a retired US Naval officer, enjoyed the museum even though... More

The main problem with this museum is its complete lack of context. It would have been nice to have had clearly delineated sections such as "the founding of the Armada de la Republica Argentina (ARA)," different wars in which it fought, its current roles and missions, etc. Instead, it seemed to be just a large collection of artifacts. I was... More

Argentina's National Naval Museum is a relatively short train ride from Buenos Aires in Tigre. Most people would go to Tigre for a delta cruise, but the Naval Museum is worth a detour. Packed with history, models and relics from battles and wars it is not to be missed.
