  • Interesting site. Work during the week and is charged the value of 10mil GRN per person. Unfortunately the visit is not guided. If you have time, it's worth it.

  • The building of the former Museum once in the train station. Now, alas, this transport does not exist in class. Only remnants of tram/railway paths tell us that once rode streetcars and trains went life bubbled, and Paraguay was successful and rich. The museum itself is a very interesting inside and outside. There are many worthy exhibits. History fans will need to go here.

  • 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.
  • 👍
  • Memory of train in paraguay

Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
