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.
