Cheyenne Depot Museum, Cheyenne

Specialty Museum Museum
The Cheyenne Union Pacific Railroad Depot Museum is located on the south side of 15th Street, at the intersection with Cap­itol Avenue. The Depot is located—naturally enough—alongside the still-active tracks of the Union Pa­cif­ic, America’s first transcontinental railroad, in the heart of Cheyenne’s central busi­ness district. No longer used as a passenger facility, it sits on the northern side of the railroad’s mainline tracks, and forms the visual cornerstone for downtown Cheyenne. Located on the site of the first Cheyenne Depot, a wood frame building constructed in 1867, the Depot is one of the downtown’s two most significant landmarks. The Depot is prominently placement at one end of Capital Avenue, opposite the Wyoming State Capitol; Cheyenne’s other major historical landmark.

  • It'll cost some coin to visit the Cheyenne Depot Museum. However it'll be worth it for the Model Train Enthusiast. The exhibit is a non-moving show piece that has been meticulously put together taking...  more »
  • This place is okay. Admission seems high for what they have. This was one of our museum stops while in town, but we toured better museums in Cheyenne.  more »
  • Fun for young and old alike, and so well done. One part historical education, one part bring-out-the-kid-in-you. You can easily spend an hour or two here, then go next door to the Accomplice Brewery f...  more »

  • A throwback to the era of steam locomotives. A must-see for all you train buffs out there, especially those enchanted with steam engines, like my father. Coordinate your visit with a tour of the UP steam shop, where they are currently restoring a Big Boy, and also house a Challenger. Unfortunately we did not see the steam shop as tours are very limited and sell out months in advance. You can get tour info directly from the depot museum web site. It was still worth the visit to the museum, even if you can't coordinate a steam shop tour. A bonus can be found just about a mile away where a Big Boy is on display outdoors at Holliday Park in Cheyenne. A great experience!
  • History of the trains, Depot and other interesting stuff. Nice place to walk leisurely and stretch your legs after a long drive. Family friendly.
  • Very informative museum, but kind of small. The model train set upstairs was very interesting, but would have been better if the train was on and running.
  • A fantastic museum for the railroad loving little boys and the little boy inside us all. Built into the old transcontinental railroad station which was recently refurbished. If you're on a long road trip and need to give the kids a break, stop here!
  • Great museum that explains the history of Union Pacific, railroading in general, and their relationship to Cheyenne. Lots of interactive displays as well as a great model railroad upstairs.
