  • A reminder of the splendor of the means of transport that allowed that San Rafael is what is. Interesting but nothing out of the normal or common

  • We could visit the Museum and appreciate elements that were used on the railway and feel nostalgia because my wife is the daughter of railway. Fortunately memories are still preserved.

  • 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.
