Fodor's Expert Review Buque Museo Fragata A.R.A. Presidente Sarmiento

Puerto Madero Museum/Gallery

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 include surprisingly luxurious officers' quarters that feature parquet floors, wood paneling, and leather armchairs; cadets had to make do with hammocks.
