Worthy homage to the importance of railways in the development of the country.
Historically, railways have been the main mode of transport for passengers and all types of goods, the backbone of the industrial development of the country. As a unique form of homage, the Guatemalan Association of Friends of the Railways opened this centre to the public in 2004. The Railway Museum of Guatemala displays pieces of trains from different eras, in addition to objects related to daily life and work in this sector: clothing, station furnishings, rolling stock, a large collection of photographs and much more. One of its biggest attractions is the executive carriages owned by the International Railways of Central America, which were used for the presidents of the country and other VIP passengers.
