This museum is very small (only one hallway that's about 50 meters long), but it gives all the information necessary on the history of railways in Paraná and showcases uniforms and objects over time. Worth a few minutes of your time, and don't forget to register yourself in the book!

It is a small museum with old pieces of the history of the local railways. It might be overwhelming to notice the efforts of thousand of locals and Europeans who tried to connect a wide country and built the future of the nation. Perfect for a short visit while hanging out in the shopping mall.

A very small railway museum at the mall. I had to have my daughter-in-law translate for me, quick little stop for the train enthusiast.

When it was given back to real state develloping, being now part of the Estação Shopping Mall, the museum became wasteland. Almost nothing to see there anymore. What a pity!

Nice little museum inside the old train station, wich was turned into a shopping mall. The old instruments, books, everything that is related to the old railway is there. And the mall section is also worth of a visit (especially during the day, when the glass roof allows some sunlight). Plenty of places to eat too.
