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.

Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port
cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious
