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.

To the many positive reviews others have written about this museum – the casual adult visitors with kids we saw during our visit seemed to really enjoy themselves – must be added that this is a tremendously important historical collection of steam locomotives. It includes examples of American, European, and Japanese, as well as Chilean–made, engines spanning nearly the entire... More

This museum is awesome! It is located outside, in Quinta Normal Park, and has a great display of old school trains with their stories of origin. You can even walk through one of the train cars to get a glimpse of the inside of them. It's very affordable and you don't need more than an hour to see everything. Just... More

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.

A great place for families, especially on the weekend. There are many different trains to see and it seems as though on the weekends you can climb on some of the trains. It's also super inexpensive and great when combined with a visit to Quinta Normal Park and the other museums there (Artequin or Natural History Museum).

We visited for my son's third birthday as we were already in Santiago on other business. He is a big train fan and completely loved the outdoor museum but my husband and I were pleasantly surprised at how much we and our older daughters (6 yrs) enjoyed it. The park is nicely laid out and you can board several of... More

This museum of trains Is a sight to see with all the different trains but we had a hard time keeping our small children entertained. After seeing like the first few they lost interest. Your only aloud to climb aboard two trains and the one cabin train is the best. I do however like that the informational signs are in... More
