    This is a small museum, in what was the old Central station, where you can see a period locomotive, a dining car, and some objects more. Covers it is fast since it's not very big, but it recalls the era where Paraguay was the first country in South America to have railway, since this country in the 19th century, until he suffered the attack of the war of the Triple Alliance, was the most advanced. It is worth visiting it is not free.

    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
