As an enthusiast I have visited railway museums all over the world but this is my favourite. The locomotives are displayed in lovely surroundings with plenty of space around them. Ideal for photographs. Each locomotive has an explanation in Spanish and English although some plaques...More

A nice place to visit when strolling around the park. Tickets for adults are $800 Chilean pesos. Few trains and many noisy kids, but still ok since it doesn't take long to see the whole thing.

In "Quinta Normal" park, you have plenty of options to visit, the "Train musseum of Santiago" is a nice visit for a sunny afternoon. For a very low price you get to visit a part of the history of Santiago and Chile.

Nice display of locomotives from times past. Don't forget to ring the bell on locomotive 439 and sit in the passenger car. Great for train lovers.

Entrance fee is cheap. Then you don't have too much to see and it will be great have the chance to visit inside more trains. Anyway my 2 years old baby loved it. So I guess I'm going again.
