  • Charm me. The visit was guided by a very nice lady who obviously loves her work and told us with nostalgia the era in which the train was running. Outside the place is beautiful to take pictures

  • A simple pass close to the Centre and from the Bus Terminal, at the roundabout you find with a locomotive - which photo. Chico is the Museum, very picturesque and can be of interest to lovers of trains much. It's a dispensable walk. There are places and natural sites with much more attraction in San Rafael. It is for an evening where you're bored and want in 30 minutes to know as it was the origin of the village, the arrival of the railroad to San Rafael, etc. - something else to visit if it invades you curiosity.

  • Very good place. It is a short but very instructive visit with objects of beginning and mid of 20th century well preserved. Highly recommended.

  • Very good service and a nice opportunity to learn more about this season, representing somehow all those who were not working when they closed the branches of Argentine railways.

  • Sad aftertaste of the Sarmiento railway. The Museum is pretty mediocre anyway.
