My family enjoyed the Museum tour, especially the miniature display of railways and cities. We watched the trains come into the station from the second floor (seats available). Very neatly kept! There was a "history of railway" map engraved on the floor of the station/depot which was not only informative but also quite fascinating to look at.

Cost $8 to actually walk through the musuem, but you can get a feeling of the building without the musuem.

The renovated station was impressive and I could just imagine it bustling with passengers. The museum was $8 per adult and worth it to preserve these sites. There is seating on the 2nd floor where you could watch the rail yard in action. I'm glad we stopped.

union station really neat place to go and see all that has happened in railroading, the up stairs is super display to the public in the times of railroading. The person or persons that did this are very talented, at the time the display wasn't in operation but you can see alot.

Great museum detailing the history of the Union Pacific Railroad and it's presence in Cheyenne. Informative displays and memorabilia you won't see anywhere else. Price is $7.00 for adults, $6.00 for military and seniors, kids 12 and under free. Worth every penny.

The Cheyenne Depot hosts a lot of events that are fun for the entire family. There is a yearly Celtic festival. The pancake breakfast during Frontier Days. Bands during the summer. The annual Christmas tree lighting after the Christmas parade.

The Cheyenne Depot Museum is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon by yourself, with your kids or the whole family. The gift shop is the great starting point. The merchandise is quality and not typically "tourist" priced. The museum is complete, amazing and totally interactive. DO NOT forget to go upstairs to the model train display. It... More

A nice place to whittle away an hour, not much more. Good for train and history buffs as detailed museum and upstairs a viewing area for current trains passing (which were huge!), and in the lift was a scale model railway. Nice little place, great building.

This is not a large museum but provides an overview of the history of the railroad through Cheyenne. There is a gift store. The building is extremely well preserved and there is a new brew pub being added to the opposite end of the depot.
