Trains roll past the depot day and night. You can look over at the Union Pacific Steam Shop and yards. They have a cool interactive museum and a model railroad on the second level. The highway bridge is great place to take photos of the yard. Great museum and great gift shop.

Maybe Sunday is the wrong day to go, but it was dead and lifeless, which is not what the railroad is supposed to be associated with. I felt like I was in a funeral home.

This was a very informative and interesting museum. Upstairs are model trains and at times there is someone there to run the trains.

Very nice facility.....AND....you can look out over the Union Pacific Railroad yards and repair buildings.....they even have a "tower" that is not unlike those seen in smaller airports to control all of the activity. Also has a very nice gift shop with a very personal clerk who is very knowledgeable of the area and its' history.

In a beautiful building this museum covers about 100 years of rail history. If you are not a little bit of a rail buff you will probably be disappointed. Maybe that's why they put the model railroad on the 2nd level. But, for the rail fan there is a good selection of books, interesting photographs, and items from all kinds... More

Love the station - they just don't build like this anymore. The memorabilia is interesting, the gift shop is nice, and you can watch the trains. The bonus was the 8 ft cowboy boots in front of the station. Great photo op.

The historic Cheyenne Depot Museum is a wonderful stop for a quick look back in time to the early days of railroading. The Museum has a number of interactive displays that kids and adults alike will enjoy. Being an actual Train Depot, it sits right on the Union Pacific mainline tracks providing an up close view of trains as they... More

We really enjoyed this museum. Saw the history of the Wyoming through the train. In a nearby park (everything is close in Cheyenne) they have a static display of one of the last Big Boy locomotives. 16 driving wheels and an engine that weighed over a million pounds. Impressive! We were told that museum volunteers are restoring another one to... More
