Museo Nacional Ferroviario

Museum in Retiro

Trainspotters won't want to miss this museum dedicated to the history of Argentina's railway network. The ramshackle exhibits include porcelain from the presidential train, a collection of ornate train toilets and sinks dating from the 1870s, model trains, evocative old photographs and even the table where President Perón signed the decree that nationalized the railways in 1948.

The museum is located in a warehouse once used to store wool brought in by rail from the provinces before it was shipped overseas.
