The Railway Port Museum shelters anecdotes that give evidence of the two economic pillars upon which the growth of the region was based: trains and ships.
The so-called Museo Ferroportuario (Railroad Port Museum) in the City of Comodoro Rivadavia is located in the very railway station that used to witness the constant coming and going of people and goods. We resolved to tour around its rooms in order to understand how trade life transformed with the aid of these pioneer means of transportation: the railway and ships. We went up to the first floor through an old wooden staircase to visit the exhibition and we could appreciate collections of objects and documentation of great historical and inherited value.
We learned that the big economic and demographic boom of the city took place in the early twentieth century. It resulted from the concentration of natural resources and products manufactured in Patagonia which had to be commercialized in distant locations.
Every element is a testimony of how Comodoro Rivadavia developed and it is not surprising that this valuable material is treasured by the old railway station building itself.
