Now a historic railway museum, Museo Nacional Ferroviario Pablo Neruda de Temuco once operated as the most important railway center for steam locomotives. Walk around the locomotive yard where 14 classic trains sit elegantly presented in pristine condition. The yard also features a selection of luxurious train carts that old Chilean prominent figures used to ride-- see if you can find the secret door in the presidential cart. The former administration office has been transformed into an art gallery where a model railroad sits as the centrepiece. The name of the museum honors Pablo Neruda, a Chilean writer who lived in Temuco while his father worked at the center.

Where to stay in Temuco

Budget options can be hard to come by in Temuco, unless you're willing to stay in the busy and noisy area near the main train station. For something cleaner, larger, and more secure, consider the districts between the main square and the university, where you can stay comfortably without breaking the bank. Pricier hotels in the city center offer all the modern amenities and provide free shuttles to the airport.
