Real nice historic building. Trains constantly coming and going out back. Information booth offered great advice on what to go see and where to eat. Well worth the visit.

The Cheyenne Depot Museum was worth the eight dollar admission charge if only because of the wonderful model railroad housed in the building. There was a great deal of reading and a host or guide to provide clarification or explanation would have improved the experience....More

Took a solo long weekend trip to Cheyenne and while there visited this museum for the history of railroads. There is so much information and so many artifacts. It was quite the learning experience. I highly recommend this adventure - especially for railroad buffs.

Wonderful museum with history, models, and train-related memorabilia. Would have like more opportunities to view the actual trains passing through.

You can't miss this massive train depot. There is a visitor center, gift shop and museum inside. Boots, monuments and statues outside.

Trains contribute to our daily lives as much as trucks do. This museum is a celebration of this magnificent machine with a strong frontier slant. As people moved west Cheyenne became a major part of the story that is the American West. This museum tells...More

We weren’t able to spend time in the museum but the Depot is lovely and well restored. It was easy to imagine it’s hustle and bustle back in the days of train travel. The trains that go through town pass right outside the back windows...More
