Owner description: PRIVATE COLLECTION Railroad Museum: Colonia, Uruguay is the major Railway museum. Station, Signal Box and the Warehouse, have been constructed as a true copy of original railway buildings. The wagons that are parked in front of her, are Railway Heritage Uruguay landmarks. All, without exception, have been restored to its original state, following the drawings. With period details. Through each one of them is a trip to the past century, is to revive our history. Like the great museums of the world, each wagon is a valuable piece of history. Historical items inside the station: Bigger textEverything in the station is original, benchs, the hood, the truck to carry the packages, and announcements... Inside the boss room, is an exposition of valuable pieces that has been collected over the past five years. The first ones had been obtained in the borders of AFE (State Railways Administration). Others, who were in private hands, were acquired for the safety of railway heritage. So we can all enjoy this great show of transport that has united all the towns: The Railroad.

“NOT WORTH THE VISIT UNLESS...”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

The entrance fee is only 20 pesos (less than a dollar)...but do not spend it, unless you want to eat or have a drink at the El Tren Restaurant.

“Interesting but grumpy staff and expensive”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

With the exception of the lovely girl in the two beautiful restaurant cars at this museum, the staff were REALLY unfriendly. We admired the restoration work on the 5 old railway carriages and didn't mind giving something towards their work, but it was very expensive for what it was.
