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.

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.

I really enjoyed this museum. The Argentines obviously take pride in their nation's history and their navy, as this museum learns. It's a delight, you learn a lot, and can really feel that people and their navy take pride in their navy and its history.

This small musuem on the riverside walk has great model boats, amazing planes, lots of interesting machines, (dont miss the mechanical tide calculator) and lots of history. The captions are , of course, in spanish, but a small translating dictionary or beginner level spanish will see you through ok. Surprisingly excellent.

If you are not in a car, you will walk yourself to death to find this museum on the left hand side of the Tigres river. The problem is that the train de la costa station is on the opposite side, as well as the Tigres train station. but it's worthwhile. You will enjoy this museum a lot. The tickets... More

If you a naval buff, like ship models or just boats in general, this place is for you. For a mere 3 pesos (75 cents), we spent some 2 hours looking at all types of naval artifacts and without a doubt, the finest collection of boat and ship models to be found anywhere. There were 100's ranging from early Egyptian,... More
