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.

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
