  • Asuncion today is very different from those "golden days of yesteryear," when the elegant old central station now housing the museum was the hub of Paraguay's steam railway system. This makes a visit ...  more »
  • A shame that the Museum of the country that had the first railway in Latin America is so grim and lacking in care

  • Probably enjoyed the attractiveness of this mid 19th centaury building than the small railroad museum that is probably more for the railway buffs Does give a little insight into past  more »

  • 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.
