I’ve been on this 19th century museum military ship a few times. Often when having dinner with business associates at nearby restaurants, I offer to take them for a tour. The ships guns are shown bith on the boat and a couple on the adjacent shore. The visit cost 10 pesos, up from 5 pesos about a year ago, but... More

If you're interested in sailing ships, don't miss this one. She is very well restored and continually maintained. It is a self tour and very inexpensive.

Absolutely worth seeing, although when I visited, there were crowds of tourists on the ship. There is another ship worth seeing nearby - the Uruguay

if you are in the Puerto Madero area I would recommend a visit. It is very cheap, well kept and with a lot of history. I really enjoyed the visit. There were few schools so it was a bit crowded but Argentine children are well behaved so it was ok.

A good, fun, cheap (10 pesos each) visit to this small but charming ship. There are some nice information about the trips it took and some curious exhibits, but it lacks a proper indication on where to go. You'll often be stuck on the lower part of the ship waiting for the narrow, steep steps to clear our before you... More

This ship is in the Puerto Madero area. We came 20 minutes before closing time and we didn't have to pay the entrance. I think the entrance fee was pretty decent anyway. It was a great visit! Would definitely recommend and if you want to safe some money, come before closing!

There's nothing much to it, but it was very very cheap and a really interesting experience. It is sort of a museum, really nice thing to do on a late afternoon. Also I went on sunset and the view was wonderful!

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.

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.
