It's a nice 30 min ride from Katy, TX. The museum is small but well organized and has interesting things to see. Even entertaining for small kids. The tour guide was very helpful and answered all our questions. One could tell the museum is run by the group of enthusiasts. Would definitely recommend this place.

Nice place to take kids 3 - 10 years old. Actually as an adult I had a good time today learning about the history and visiting the place.

We went on a weekday and due to being a not busy time we got a super personal tour. It was great to have some hands on exhibits! The Presidential car was beautiful. Lots of neat things to see and close to what looked like some meat shops as well.

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.
