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!

We started our tour mid morning and ended in the play room. We let our kids play a long time, but that made us have a very late lunch. So, if you want to eat lunch at a decent time you might want to take an earlier tour, or skip the play room.

The model train room and toy trains room were unexpected and big hits for our 4 and 6 yr old granddaughters. Both rooms had a/c which was very welcomed as we visited on a hot summer Saturday. Plenty of parking in the street in front of museum and the staff were very friendly.

Really fun, quick, and easy - Interesting slice of history. Stop at the cafe across the street while you're there and hit the local shops!

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.
