“Worth a visit if you are in the area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you are in Puerto Madero, you should visit this historic site. The cost is less than a dollar and the ship has been beautifully preserved.

“A piece of history in Puerto Madero”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

When visiting Puerto Madero you MUST take a tour and see a well preserved piece of naval history. The entrance is 3 pesos (less than a bottle of water) but the joy is bigger, especially if you travel with kids.
Great place for taking pictures and another spot for admiring Puerto Madero.

“Well Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

For forty years the Fragata ARA Presidente Sarmiento served as a training vessel for the Argentinian Navy. Today it sits, having been transformed into a museum, anchored in the canal in Puerto Madero. For only 2 Pesos ($.50 USD), you can gain entry to the ship and can explore many areas that in the US would be closed due to safety and accessibility reasons. Argentina did an excellent job converting the vessel including the addition of images, displays, documents and explanations (in Spanish only) of what you are actually exploring. Truthfully, they could charge ten times what they do and it would be worth visiting. The ship itself is gorgeous, full of highly polished wood and brass contrasted with freshly painted black and white metal. You certainly learn a great deal about the time it spent on sea, and just how it managed to sail across the world 37 times all while freely exploring nearly five stories of history.
