Though not a polished museum, this is well worth a brief visit if you have any interest in trains or colonial-era history. There are many interesting antiques, the most fascinating of which is the old dining car that you can pass through that looks as...More

The old central railway station is a time capsule of history of the railways in Paraguay since the 1850's. Although it's a bit run down through lack of funds most probably, it is well worth the visit. Just stare at the exhibits and let your...More

If you are walking around downtown Asuncion, you should visit this Museum. It will remember you all the old times of the trains and the ways the people travel from one place to another. it will be a short visit but you will enjoy it.

Entrance costs 10,000 Gs per adult (less than $2.00) and the items on display are very cool! From old phones and telegram machines, to old train carriages. Would definitely recommend paying a visit

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 to the railway museum a good and interesting thing to do but...More

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

The museum is inside the former railway station. It has several rooms filled with railroad equipment and memorabilia that gives the history of rail travel in Paraguay. The museum also has an old dining car that one can go inside and an engine. A person...More

It is a very interesting place to visit, but it needs some remaking. The museum is very poor of attractions!
