I agree with other reviews, the cost for two tickets was $20 pesos, or about $1.35 USD. It is a cool old vessel, which is fun to explore and has a cool history as a Naval training ship. Only took about 30 minutes to tour.

Worth visiting during a sunny day when you spend time in Puerto Madero. It is a short visit, ideal if you have kids.

My son first spotted it and made us go to see it up close, then we realised it was a museum. Really great stop for the whole family. If you always wondered how a ship like that would be inside, then you shouldn't miss it. Impeccable state and tons of history.

Old war ship located in the coast of Puerto Madero, now it's a museum to visit in family! Lots of delicated objects used in sailing and for war. Children love this amazing place, they remember for years this kind of visit, and for adults it's a new world to discover. Great place to enjoy while wlaking on Puerto Madero.

It's fun to explore both decks of this huge war ship! Otherwise, not much going on in Puerto Madero.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
