  • The history was very detailed and for my first time actually going on the boat it was very insightful. Going below is cool because they have a lot of historic objects that makes the history lesson a little more like traveling to the past. To see the people and background helps you realize more about the life aboard. The cost to get on was I believe 20 pesos Nov-Dec2019 but we know that might and could change. Just wanted to add the price so people might know. If I am wrong please correct me. Well worth a quick tour and great for families in my opinion.
  • Nice place, it represents the union between Uruguay and Argentina naval defense and the historical cooperation of them, it has losts of materials and nostes with some text of explanation of its meaning.
