Museo Nacional Ferroviario Pablo Neruda de Temuco, Temuco

4.3
Now a historic railway museum, Museo Nacional Ferroviario Pablo Neruda de Temuco once operated as the most important railway center for steam locomotives. Walk around the locomotive yard where 14 classic trains sit elegantly presented in pristine condition. The yard also features a selection of luxurious train carts that old Chilean prominent figures used to ride-- see if you can find the secret door in the presidential cart. The former administration office has been transformed into an art gallery where a model railroad sits as the centrepiece. The name of the museum honors Pablo Neruda, a Chilean writer who lived in Temuco while his father worked at the center.

  • It is the only place that is preserved since the foundation of the city, visiting it is a trip to the railway past of the last border of chile, as well as recommend visiting the viaduct of the Malleco for lovers of the railway past

  • Pretty cool place. I think you have to go during the summer to experience the whole thing. Since I chase snow this probably is not going to happen
  • A must-see landmark in Temuco. Where it is possible to appreciate part of the railway history of the city and its close relationship with the poet Pablo Neruda.
