Originally known as Enron Field (we all know what happened there), Minute Maid Park replaced the legendary AstroDome. This is another facility with a retractable roof, which comes in great during the hot summer months in Houston. Be sure to check out the locomotive installed behind the "Crawford Boxes" in left field that was installed as a tribute to the old Union Station which once stood on those grounds.
A variety of tour options are available. Please visit for tour information.
Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium. Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside. Pat down searches may be required.
Bags larger than 16" x 16" x 8" are prohibited. All bags are subject to search.
Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
There are three different bus stops within 0.25 miles of the stadium. They are all on Congress St. You can catch the 006, 020, 030, 048, 137, 236, 255, 256, and 257 to get to or from the stadium. Check the Metro website for times and your particular bus. They have a nifty trip planner to help you plan your whole way using their services. The METRO has a day pass for unlimited riding for $3.00. This will be your best bet.
While this won't get you to or from the game, there is a train that runs along left field. Make sure to see this while at the stadium. If you need transportation to the game, Union Station is right across the street. Check your train routes for that stop!
