Fantastic value at 20 pesos I spent a very happy hour and a half in here (might have been a bit less if it hadn't taken my weak Spanish so long to decipher the information signs). The physical layout is a bit confusing but it covers the whole of South America's naval history, from pirates to trade ships, to luxury... More

I was interested to have a look in the museum, but since there were no English translations, decided to give it a miss. The entrance fees was AR$ 20.

The naval museum is a charming collection of bits and pieces from Argentina's naval history. As I'm most interested in steel ships, I was impressed by the two large scale models of the two dreadnoughts Argentina once owned. Also, finally seeing Vito Dumas' LEHG II was an emotional moment for me although since her restauration, she probably looks better than... More

This is a great museum. I just wish I spoke Spanish or explanations were in English. The museum has many artifacts, and some very interesting ones indeed. I specially like the area dedicated to more modern history - - after the sailing ships. My favorite exhibit, oddly, was the miniature recreations of bathrooms and living spaces aboard ships. These recreations... More

A review of the museum including much more, including the town! I stopped by, the museum, following an excellent lunch down the street. The staff at the museum was very courteous and helpful, as the young people spoke English. The Restaurant, Villa Julia, is a short walk, in a historic building on the corner, So, a museum, a lunch and... More

It is a large museum. Read up on the history before you go to better enjoy the exhibits. Sadly we could have done with another hour, there are many ship models from the beginning of the Argentine Navy as well as armaments and more to see outside.

This museum is clearly old school and honestly, it is a bit old. If one would be picky, one would spot the paint has faded, broken exhibition materials but then again: you paid less than a dollar (hum, at the blue rate). And that's all the charm. I love the idea of a spotless navy uniform dressed ward at the... More

Visited with my 18 yr old grandson. The only disadvantage is that there are no explanations in English. I was told there was an English speaking translator/guide on the weekends in the afternoon. Exhibits are varied and quite well laid out. By Argentine standards, it is very well done. Clean and well lit. The exhibition continues outside. Will definitely return... More

This museum has an extensive collection of detailed ship models from all eras and it was interesting to consider the evolution of ship design in that context. There was also a ton of captain's chests and ship furniture.

I had the chance to know about this beautiful museum, my children enjoyed so much as we did. Scale boats of all times so carefully constructed and maintained is almost a dream for kids and curious fathers; some real size planes, missiles, mines and torpedoes (a real plus). Higly recommende, specially when the workshops are available.
