The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Buque Museo Corbeta Uruguay provides an interesting look into ships from the old days of the Argentina Navy. I must admit that I am no fan of the Argentine Navy as the navy was a bitter enemy of Juan Peron. However, for only AR$100 entrance. The Buque Museo Corbeta Uruguay is a bargain.

We didn't plan to go here, but saw it as we were exploring around Puerto Madero. It was interesting to go around the ship. Lots of ladders to climb up and down and many different rooms to see.

We came across this boat anchored at the port. This great boat is now a museum. It made many trips to Antartica and inside the boat there were numerous displays of its past voyages, equipment and crew. It was a great way to spend time and learn about this great boat and the way of life of its captains and crew.

We hadn't planned on visiting this historic ship/museum before we set out on a day of sightseeing but we're very glad we did as it was so inexpensive (less than $1 each) and we had a very interesting look around for 30 min or so. Most of the information is in Spanish but a few small bits in English which helped a bit & inspired me to look up the Internet later for more information about early Antarctic exploration from Argentina. I may have been more interested than most being the granddaughter of a Scottish fisherman who immigrated to Sydney in 1920s; however, my husband also said "so much better than our tour around Teatro Colon( BA Historic theatre) which cost us a huge amount for a tour which took slightly longer. There are also good photo opportunities both in and from the sailing ship. Don't miss seeing the ship's mascot - a beautiful dog that's now a taxidermy display - looks like he was well loved in his day! From there it's a very short walk to the Puente de la Mujer (famous Pedestrian Bridge) and a longer but manageable walk (if you're quite mobile) to centre of BA. There are many coffee or lunch places around this port (many expensive restaurants) but also some less expensive burger/sandwich places a street back from waterfront - not the usual big chains so a nice change too. A really great day out and this sailing ship created a large part of the enjoyment for us. It would be good if there was an information leaflet or similar in English even if a little more was charged for tourists?

One of the early south pole exploration vessels, this masted sailing ship was used by Argentina to travel via Drake's passage to Antarctica in the early 1900s. The museum has many items used during these expeditions on display, as well as photos and other memorabilia. If one is interested in Antarctic exploration, and understands the incredible bravery of the men who went there, this is a very evocative floating museum.

Very interesting. The ship has a really interesting history, with Antarctic trips including the rescue of some stranded explorers. Very friendly staff. And it only costs 2 pesos (15 pence) to go on there.

A well preserved sailing vessel that did many Antarctic trips and is now a floating museum at Puerto Madero.

Attractive, inside an out.

This is another ship museum at Puerto Madero. Uruguay had been to Antarctica for several times and it is now sitting by the waterfront for visit by tourists. Entrance fee is inexpensive and welcome by kids.

We found this ship by accident and we're thrilled to find that it had been built in the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead Uk which is my home town. The men in charge were interested to hear this and were very helpful in showing us around. The boat is kept in beautiful condition and it is really interesting to read the story about it's life after leaving Birkenhead and going down to the Antarctic . It's well worth a visit.
