In 1992, a group of citizens concerned about the future of historic downtown Rosenberg, began exploring the idea of creating a museum that would help preserve the railroad history of Fort Bend County. The following year, a rail company donated a 1.5-acre plot in Downtown for the new museum and the organization began collecting its first artifacts.
Today, the exhibits at Rosenberg Railroad Museum include a comprehensive gallery of artifacts from the railroad past as well Tower 17, the 1879 Quebec business car. You’ll discover the museum’s 1944 Seagrave fire engine, a “war baby” model delivered to the Fire Department of Orange, Texas in 1944.
A gift shop offers eclectic items for those looking for a keepsake to help them remember their visit or seeking for a gift for someone special. The Railroad Museum also offers space for events and parties. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.
