The museum, which is inside the old main station, has an interesting collection of items gathered over many years. The old telephone exchange, ticket machines, a range of station clocks (all from England) and a large collection of photos make this an interesting place to visit. There is an old steam engine and a carriage in situ by the old platforms.

Not much has been done since this railway station was closed many years ago. Even the tickets is old style and looks like real train tickets from those days. Lots of stuff is on display and to waggons is on the perron together with an locomotive. It is all kept originalt and is a bit messy, but fun to visite. If you want, you can ring the big bell for "all onboard" on the perron. The museum is worth visiting and it is cheap.

This place is 200 yards from the hotel I stay at in Asuncion. Went there one morning my business associate and I had free. It is run down and a little dirty. Sometimes local protesing Indians camp outside and night and sleep there, so be ready sometimes for the smell of pee and poop. Really even if well maintained, not much here to see.

This is a fun little museum about the history of the railroad in Paraguay. There are just a few rooms to wander through and no English descriptions (and very few Spanish descriptions), but it's interesting enough. Looks a bit like an antique shop, with artifacts placed all about on tables and the floor. The artifacts are illustrated with interesting period photographs. You can also check out reconstructed train carriages out back. Perhaps a 30 minute visit is sufficient.
