    The Museum aims to show how was the story of the railway in Uruguay. Maps, objects of use in cars as instruments for guidance, crazy lighting in cars restaurants ..., well the story. The wagons exposed as the dorm room and restaurant were closed, and the difference in height between the floor and the Windows of the cars could not observe a lot. Was just the will. A little expensive for what it offers. 30 pesos per person.

    I visited him one day about noon Thursday but it was closed, without any indication of hours and the reason for their situation from the gate you can see antique trucks. Also operates a restaurant

Where to stay in Colonia del Sacramento

In contrast to its quaint historical architecture, Colonia del Sacramento offers a range of multi-story, luxury accommodations. Most of these sit near the tip of the city's peninsula, with swimming pools and good beach access. If you want to stay in the old town itself, choose between a range of hostels, inns, and boutique hotels housed in buildings more in keeping with the city's colonial architecture. Make sure to reserve your accommodations in advance, especially if visiting on a weekend or during the busy summer season.
