  • It's really impressive to see the railway station of the first train from South America. There were many people visiting it so that may be a short visit.

  • I took the 8-year-old son. Old station, tools, automobile, and boy is a dream-like place. With shining eyes, were running around. Went for lunch on a weekday because many people and look slowly. Staff is very kind, willing to talk to us, to watch it with my son was. Can get inside the car and was bubbling over with delight. Child likes trains will be good. I was happy for you, try the train after a long absence he came from Japan, since Paraguay currently does not run trains may be enjoyed. Have a look because it is older than Japan's railway history that the dip.

  • 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.
