  • We were there to see the railway station no more, not knowing that is a museum. It was a little bit surprised by the loss of money to enter, but which saw then totally won worth it! We are Europeans and it will be nearly impossible to see an exhibition of similar objects within its original place there, because all this was pulled or had to undergo new technology for 50 or 100 years already, and none of this was preserved in way so accessible as here. They are the exponatos and you can see from up close. The local people are wise and responsible for its tradition. Also the Paraguayan railroad history seems to be special in the way that was established as one of the first with the then very new technology, which was retained by 130 years and so survived decennios more than in other parts of the world. This museum is a heritage not one Paraguayan, but of all nations of the world.

  • This is the old Central station in the capital, where the trains were leaving up to Buenos Aires. One of the first stations in South America, built by britanques and now abandoned. The entire railway system was left abandoned. They left more than a few abandoned stations in the country including this one. You could visit the presidential car, but currently it is inaccessible to the public. There are more than one or two locomotives at wood and the train station with the furniture.

  • A small and fun railroad museum in Asuncion's main railway station. Features a variety of documents and items from the period, as well as two rail cars and a steam locomotive. The rail cars are usually open, however the president's personal railcar is being restored. A nice museum with a 10,000 G ($2) admission fee. Open until 16:00 on weekdays and around 15:00 on weekends.
  • Small museum located inside the old train station. Not much to see here but maybe it's worth it a visit in case you'll find yourself close to Uruguay park
  • Can't miss it if you like old trains stuff. Small museum with a few rooms full of old machines, radio, electronics, etc.
  • ¡EXCELENTE!
  • Historic building full of memories for those nostalgic of the steam railroad.
