The Rosenberg Railroad Museum is located at the corner of Avenue F and 3d Street in old Downtown Rosenberg, two blocks north of Highway 90 westbound. They’re open Wednesday to Saturday 10:00 – 5:00 and Sunday 1:00 – 5:00. It’s kid-friendly (there’s an educational center for younglings with books and train games and such) but some of the exhibits aren’t wheelchair-friendly due to the need to climb stairs into them and the very narrow passageways in the cars. The outdoor Garden Layout only runs a couple of days a month since it’s handled by volunteer hobbyists… check the website for details.
This is a very nice museum and such things cost money, so there are small admission fees. (adults $7.50 with discounts for seniors, military, and first responders; $5.00 for kids over 2.) There’s plenty of parking in front of the museum and in a lot across 3d street.
(More-or-less standard marketing teaser: Andromeda and I will be heading back out soon as we get a couple of crazy things sorted at Houston base camp. Look for the tales of our adventures here, over at The Other Texas, and on Instagram, where we’re @rcmwandering (using hashtags #AndromedaII, #howtostopatruck, and #attheendofthepavedroad) and also @theothertexas. I’ll toss links, snark, and occasional raging liberal political comments on Twitter sometimes, too – @rcmwandering and @theothertexas (no politics here, if that matters.)
(Obligatory commercial note: If you haven’t already, please use the link on the front page and sign up for the mailing list. It’s a way to keep in touch and I promise personally that you will never be sold or spammed, because I get all sorts of raving and rantish when that’s done to me, too…)
