The Train Wagon

Trains were the main mode of transportation during the first half of the twentieth century, and began to disappear as automobiles were brought to the country. At the museum, visitors can enter the wagon which brings back memories of the long journeys during the old days, the progress that it came to symbolize, and even the trips Gaitán made around most of the country. In the museum wagon visitors can relive these moments in history while they watch the documentaries shown.

Did you know that…?

At the museum you can find the suit Jorge Eliécer Gaitán Ayala was wearing the day he was murdered.
You can see his personal agenda in which he wrote down his appointment with Fidel Castro on April 7, 1948.
Gaitán was an art lover and his house is decorated with images and works of important artists such as Rembrandt, Michael Angelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Gustave Doré, Rómulo Rozo, and Ricardo Rendón
