Housed in the former station, the story of Paraguay's railways, now no longer operative, is well told in photographs, documents and a whole host of small exhibits. The original platform houses one of the tiny original locomotives. There are somewhat derelict coaches on a site...More

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

This is a great small railway museum. Well worth the entrance fee and will take an hour to trundle around.

It's a nice place to visit, no more than 30min. Some information and old components of a train, railroad and train station. A visit inside a old wagon is the most interesting part. Gs$ 10.000 (for foreign)

It's a very old and poorly taken care of museum. There are interesting objects and documents to see, and there is a wagon we can get inside, which is very cool.
