  • It is easy to reach and is not costly to the entrance ($ 5) a guide explains the history of the railway in San Rafael, and has classical objects than it was a box office.

  • 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.
