Buque Museo Fragata A.R.A. Presidente Sarmiento (President Sarmiento Frigate Museum) Review

The navy commissioned this frigate from England in 1898 to be used as an open-sea training vessel. The 280-foot boat used up to 33 sails and carried more than 300 crew members: the beautifully restored cabins afford a glimpse of what life onboard was like. Surprisingly luxurious officers' quarters include parquet floors, wood paneling, and leather armchairs; cadets had to make do with hammocks.
