  • Very interesting Museum, objects that are not found in other types of museums. Entry price well accessible, I don't remember exactly the value, but equivalent to approximately R $6.00. A lot of material related to the construction and use of the train station, including passenger cars and restaurants, where you can enter and photograph ... Remains including the kitchen of the wagon. I found it very interesting. The part that stays on the own network is also pretty cool. Located right in the Centre, near the main shopping streets, opposite the square. Reserve at least 40 min or 1 hour.

  • The station Central the railway Carlos Antonio Lopez, then developed in the Railway Museum. The railroad was implemented under the Presidency of Carlos Antonio López, in 1856, performing in 1861 the first journey, its realization is commissioned to English engineers. Inside the Museum of seen a locomotive and a dining car, in addition to numerous historical objects related to the rail world, a pity the lack of maintenance. Paid entrance to 10,000 Guaranis

  • Wouldn't even enter the Museum because there was no one inside, besides being all too old and kind of dropped. I do not recommend not.

  • 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.
