It's a great place for a family adventure! Plan to visit the Soda Fountain across the street after your visit. The old-fashioned, authentic feel just continues the fun of the Railroad Museum!

Our two year old loved walking through the caboose and seeing the operating model train. Watching the introductory videos, going on the tour, and allowing our child to play on wooden train playground took an hour and a half. Would recommend stopping into the soda fountain across the street and going into some of the antique shops.

Interesting to see how Rosenberg has been a railroad hub since the 1800's

Nice museum, and small enough to go with little ones. We enjoyed watching the trains pass by, too!

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.
