  • The Museo del Ferrocarril is a place where are trains that would be used to transport people to the region where it is. But according to the local guide the plan didn't work because of the closing of the Bullring due to Uruguayan law established. The Museum was created to expose the tourists the cars that are in your original feature. There is a cafeteria working inside one of the cars, with the cold arrived with the hope of taking a hot chocolate or coffee but to our surprise they were only serving soda. The ticket for the tour is $ = 20 Uruguayan pesos (R$ = 2.50) and the works of 10:00 at 6:00 pm!! The tour can be combined with the bullring, Paleontological Museum, Playa Real de San Carlos and the Iglesia de San Benito. Everyone in the neighborhood, about 5 km from the historic centre. Gold Tip: For those who love to save or make your rides in order to experience all the city my tip is to take a bus on Av General Flores called "SAN CARLOS" costs $ 21 Uruguayan pesos (R$ = 2.60) and leaves the side of the Plaza de Toros and do the rest on foot, the journey takes about 20 minutes.
