Museo Nacional Ferroviario Pablo Neruda de Temuco, Temuco

(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.
