4. The Argentine Navy Museum Ships

Just a short walk from each other you can find the ARA Uruguay Museum Ship and the ARA Sarmiento Frigate. The former was incorporated into the Argentine navy's fleet in 1874 and saw more than 50 years in service, most significantly in the Antarctic. The Sarmiento, meanwhile, was built in 1897 and spent long months at sea until 1938, after which it served as a training ship. 

Both ships are permanently moored and visitors can tour the bunks, machine rooms, boilers, and see historic documents and photographs that detail the lives of the former crews in order to get a feel for their lives at sea.
