There were quite a few young (sub-5 year old) kids there the day we went. I'm not sure most (any) of them got much out of the visit except having fun in the playroom (which is a bit tired). It's a neat place, and it's really cool to see the real trains go by regularly, but probably best for slightly older kids and adults. A worthwhile trip though!

We had a great visit. The kids loved it. The caboose was closed due to AC issues but the rest of the tour was great!

Very cute little train depot. We were given a private tour of the ground that included train cars, an operation tower, and caboose. Even got to meet the local pet chicken named Choo-Choo. We enjoyed the throw back in time... After the tour, went across the street to an old timey Soda Fountain restaurant. Good time!

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.
