There was a wonderful gift shop, and a very large miniature train exhibit. Some displays are waiting to be filled.

I visited this as part of a railway tour, so we were a pretty critical audience. The general opinion was that there was some excellent material in this small museum and we would have welcomed more time to explore it more fully.

We walked around thinking mmm nothing is working, there is no locos'. We asked the lady who was sitting there and she replied the remote batteries had run out!!! We... More

Great miniature train display on second floor - unfortunately installed rather awkwardly for children to view. If Mom or Dad don't hold them the entire time, they are going to miss most all of the detail.

Cheyenne is a major home to the Santa Fe railroad. The former depot has been converted to a visitors center, museum and multi-use office space. With its convenient location in downtown, it is a great place from which to launch your visit to explore the city. The museum is home to a phenomenal model railroad layout that was built almost...

Interesting stop if you are a train enthusiast. I am not, but enjoyed this place. History of trains in this area is interesting. And the model train layout upstairs is a must. Added bonus was watching freight trains going through.

Loved the beautiful brick building and decorated boot statues. Didn't get to go to the train museum but we love the Western buildings in the area, especially The Wrangler western store next door.

It is a nice attempt at a specialized museum, but not worth the price. The interior of the depot is disappointing, not as grand as the outside and it has been cut up to fit in the museum

Like most all of downtown Cheyenne, the building is beautiful, restored to its glory days. They had booths inside and out with everything from expensive jewelry to Christmas ornaments for sale. They also had a few food vendors right outside. Also waiting right outside is a FREE carriage ride with a man who obviously knows his Cheyenne history. Loved the... More
