January 4, 2022: proclamation reading about the quarter-century history at San Angelo City Council
According to Railway Museum Board president Suzanna Valenzuela, the proclamation reveals several changes. “We’re expanding operating hours to three days a week,” Valenzuela said. “In addition to the regular Saturday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. hours, the museum will be open Thursday and Friday from 1-5 p.m. We’ll be able to handle school tours and special groups and create opportunities for people to visit the museum on weekdays.”
On the second Saturday each month from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the museum’s kid-sized motorized train will chug around the grounds and scale model trains will be on display. There are Living History tours, treasure hunts and static displays to help people discover the depot’s secrets. Vendors and food trucks are part of the fun.
WHERE WE ARE LOCATED
The museum is located in the cultural district, which is the largest in Texas with 200 acres. It includes Historic Fort Concho National Landmark and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
