10 peso entrance allows you to walk around the ship. There is a lot of displays and artifacts from sailors and navy folk. The ship is nice so walking around it was the best part. If you have 30-60 minutes free worth it's ok

This ship is a very historic ship for the Argentines. It is in Puerto Madero. I believe you can visit aboard at certain times.

Fragata Sarmiento is conveniently located in the heart of the beautiful Puerto Madero. It's an old but well preserved ship with a little museum inside. The entrance ticket is ARS 10 (USD 0,6) and is optional so you can access for free. Highly recommended!
