    Is a small museum which is located in Quinta Normal. Worth it if you have some spare day in Santiago. On Thursday there's Normal other museums too. The Railway Museum is paid and costs $800 Pesos. The Park is very beautiful and care. We went to subway. We get on fine arts station, direction Plaza Maipú, and jumped in the fifth Normal. The station is right in front of the entrance to the Park.

    It's nice to stroll through a Museum in the open air. There are many trains, of many types. You can go under some and their details, enter their wagons and some photos, sitting you in the seats that were used more than 50 or 100 years ago. It is also a very nice Park to relax and stroll. The entrance ticket is economic.

    Beautiful place, impressive machines. Sadly some visitors don't take care of the locomotives, and used them as trash bins

    Very nice Museum to visit. It is recommended to go with children. Of course a brief explanation by a guide for those who don't know much about the subject.
