Cheyenne Depot Museum Reviews
The Most beautiful Railroad Depot between Omaha and Sacramento May 13, 2010
The Cheyenne Depot Museum, which was built in 1885-1886 as a Union Pacific Depot, has recently been renovated in downtown Cheyenne. The story of the establishment of Cheyenne during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, the operation of the Union Pacific Railroad and the history of the construction of the Union Pacific Depot. A map of the transcontinental railroad route from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Promissory Point, Utah, with historical details made out of poured colored stone has been embedded in the lobby floor. The museum-quality exhibit is a unique attraction for all the visitors who come to this 1929 Art Deco lobby of the Union Pacific Depot. The Main Yard is best seen from the second floor where you can also experience the “touchable museum experience” which the kids love. This historical landmark has a prominent clock tower which can be seen from much of the city.
