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.

Very interesting museum. They expose a lots of photos, films and miniatures trains. You learn how they built the railroad by that time under which conditions they worked. Interesting was also how they traveled in the different classes. Miles & More. 9920 0415 1276 468

From the gift shop it looks like the Museum might not be worth the price of admission. But it is. You will learn more about the history of Cheyenne here than at any other location in town. We only had an hour to work our...More

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.
