Right in downtown Cheyenne. There is a charge (a little steep), but worth supporting this local museum. Wide range of exhibits about trains and train travel. Kids and adults enjoy this museum.

Easily located right downtown, this is a nicely renewed building. Very lovely inside and the sculptures outside are outstanding. They really reflect the effort the town has put into creating a lovely center park.
