Cheyenne Depot Museum, Cheyenne

4.2
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.

  • Very beautiful inside & out! We loved the tile work inside and the architecture throughout the building. The whole place is like a work of art. Anything that gives love to trains is a hit with my 2 year old. It's an amazing place to see the trains and learn about the history... It's also a great location near other tourist attractions.
  • Loved my visit here. Cheap entry price, great displays with plenty of information and history, nice viewing area of the railroad, and a model railway. All in all is a great addition to any trip in Cheyenne. I recommended going even if you have just a passing interest in rail way history.
