Amazing community museum, the staff is knowledgeable and so nice. Be sure to ask about the tour, its very informative and you don't want to miss the train car or the amazingly detailed little mini city! Make a point to visit on the fourth Sunday of each month when the Model Train Club runs the trains in the Railroad Garden!

A place for the train / railroad enthused. While there's not a whole lot to it, my 4 year old son and I really enjoyed it. He can't wait to go back to see the life model in action (every 4th Sunday).

Very enjoyable day spent with the grandchildren. Jordan was a very informative and courteous guide. Perhaps better to go when it is cooler. A gem of a find outside of Houston. Excellent day trio!

From Our Editors

If it weren’t for the railroad, there would be no Rosenberg. In 1880 the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe Company extended their tracks across those of another railway, creating a junction that they named after the railway’s president, Henry von Rosenberg. All that remains of this junction’s original depot, from which the town of Rosenberg grew, is the signal tower, which is now the centerpiece of Rosenberg Railroad Museum’s collection of historic railcars and other railway paraphernalia.

Representing the full spectrum of passenger railcars, the collection includes a caboose—the living quarters of a train conductor—and a Canadian government business car, which in the 1920s had been appointed to transport dignitaries and prime ministers in comfort. At the museum’s education center, an HO-gauge model train gives visitors a macro view of a rail network, and, up in the signal tower, an interlocking machine lets visitors play at train traffic control, using the same switches the towerman flipped back in 1903 to make sure only one train was routed through a junction at a time and no trains were routed down the tracks that just led straight off the edge of the world.
