Place is kind of small but is full of a lot of neat history items. Shows a neat timeline of the dates the railroad expanded west.

I visited this museum while visiting family in Cheyenne. There is not a lot to do in this town in the winter by way of culture but we tried this museum. It is tiny but interesting if u like trains. The model trains were neat especially the detailed town models. My nephews and niece were not super impressed though. Its... More

The museum is well done. The models were all working and the kids enjoyed them thoroughly. The history of Trains in Wyoming, as well as any other state, is an interesting aspect of American history we should all learn. Stop my the information desk first in the depot and get their coupon book. In our one afternoon and evening it... More

I like old stuff, especially from old Western Eras. This Depot is actually well preserved and has lots of shops to keep you interested.

This land-mark building is well worth the stop for good food, tasty micro-brews made in-house, and it's a great place for train-spotting and launching a walking tour of downtown Cheyenne.

Nice museum with history of railroading on ground floor. Some pretty neat displays with some limited interaction. Second floor is devoted to a model train layout. Nothing running but there is a small layout that can be controlled by kids. Impressive layout with an emphasis on layout and scenery. Docent finally arrives and gets one train running on the larger... More

This train depot brought me back to my childhood when my grandfather used to visit us by railroad. The building I believe is from before the turn of the century. The quality and craftsmanship is a sight to behold. If you enjoy old buildings I would definitely recommend this site. There is a train museum and gift shop. We did... More

A wonderful place to visit if you appreciate the western railroad movement. Lot's of history to savor in a historic old depot in the heart of Cheyenne. By all means, don't miss the model train displays in the upstairs museum. Spectacular stuff!!

A little history of the buildings in the area, several artsy boots and shopping in the area. We were going to 'The Wrangler' next door and stopped here on the way there.
