#2 of 15 in Things to do in Temuco
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.

  • Wonderful place, historic rescue of the passage of the train in Chile. A pity that already gradually disappear from our lives. You must visit it and soak up our railway history.

  • It is an excellent place to visit in Temuco. Located in the former powerhouse of the railroad. It presents ancient locomotives and carriages of trains that allow you to get an idea of how the train penetrated in the humid forest of the Araucanía in the times of Neruda. Is surrounded by a park, with native trees and generally, apart from the old trains, there are cultural events: exhibitions of painting, music and regional crafts. I have whenever I can to my foreign friends and other parts of chile. I recommend it!
