It tells you the history of the building of Argentina’s railways by the British in the late 1800s. Fascinating seeing so much equipment that found its way across the Atlantic. Even the main Retiro station is British built. The museum is free and one of the people working there speaks excellent English, so you can get a good understanding of Argentina’s railways. Easy to get to and worth a quick visit.

Not in many of the guide books. Came across this in passing. So pleased I did. Wonderful array of artefacts displayed with information in Spanish and English. A varied display including dining service china, and technical equipment from the last 150 years or so of Argentine railway. Be lucky and get an old fashioned ticket stamped at the ticket office, and run the large model locomotive. Weekends the coaches behind the museum are open also. Free entrance and takes 30-60 minutes, or probably more for real train enthusiasts!

If you like trains, check out the National Railway Museum located right next to an actively working junction of several commuter trains into downtown Buenos Aires. There is a steam locomotive on display outside the museum. A small collection, but worth a quick visit.

We noticed this museum because it was down the street from our hotel. We are so glad we went in! It is free, which is a great. But it is really interesting too if you like learning about the history of the railway and other transportation in Buenos Aires. AND, all of the descriptions are in Spanish and English, which was a wonderful bonus.The upstairs was closed when we visited but we still were there an hour or so.
