Nice museum about the history of Cheyenne and the railroad. Lots of pictures from the building of the railroad thru Cheyenne to present day. Good variety of information and displays.

A cute museum. Not very big. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was fun to see the way people used to travel. The man on the second floor knew a lot about model trains.

The exhibits take you through the history of the UP, the people and the trains. Well presented and explained. A working model railroad is operated on the second floor which also offers a viewing platform of the UP railroad tracks. Souvenir/gift store.

If you like trains & the history of them, this is your place. Lots of information & a huge model train set up with different towns. My teenage son really liked it.

Didn’t mind paying to look through this museum. It is easy to walk and read without a lot of clutter. A few movies 🎥 to give personal renditions. A very cool building as well.

I will try and not to commercialize it too much but... This place is sooo amazing. You honestly can’t get this type of history in a book (well maybe). I am only saying this because some places are doing away with this type of stuff...More
