The Museo del Ferrocarril (Train Museum) of Havana is located in the old Cristina Station, built in 1859, in the quarter of Vedado.

Cuba was one of the first countries in the world to build a rail network, and the trains on the island began to run at least a decade before those in Spain.

The museum exhibits a great collection of old locomotives, photographs, and signaling materials, as well as an interesting review of the Cuban trains history.

On its interior you’ll find steam engine locomotives for broad and narrow rails, as well as diesel and electric locomotives. One of the most important items in the museum is the La Junta de Fomento Locomotive, bought in the US in 1842.

The museum also houses an area which reproduces the operations room of a train station in the first half of the 20th century; and a Railway Modelling Room which exhibits scale models of stations and railway equipments. The museum also contains a library and a newspapers and periodicals library which specialises in this field.

It is possible to take trains trips by booking in advance.
