Was a very nicely put together display. The staff was very knowledgable and answered the questions we had about the surrounding area.

Very interesting. I was not familiar with the rail history of Wyoming. It was certainly worth the visit.

A really great little museum. The museum is located on the west end of the depot. There are several great displays, a gift shop, a 2nd floor viewing room to watch Union Pacific trains go by, and a huge model railroad layout.

My son and I toured this museum and we enjoyed learning about the history of railroad travel to Cheyenne in the early days. It's not a large museum but it is very interesting.

The museum was great, very informative and enjoyable for middle school kids and up. However if you are expecting to buy anything train related in the gift store you will be highly disappointed. We couldn't find any trains or anything with union pacific on it.

Quick trip through the Depot itself. We didn't pay for admission to the museum, but enjoyed the building, vendors, etc.

Pretty small but nice, historic area, small admission cost. Many kiosks in same building with some nice gifts (no admission fee for shopping areas.)

Nice museum. A bit expensive but if you like trains, this is the place. Steam engines, and an elaborate miniature train track.

If you are a fan of trains and especially the Union Pacific, this is a must stop. It has an excellent museum on the building for the Union Pacific in the West. It could e a little boring for kids, but if you are interested in trains and history it is excellent. I still have an interest in model trains... More

Very interesting. They have lots of displays and they are artfully displayed. Depot is easy to find but parking can be a problem during rodeo week. The miniature train room upstairs is really nice.
