This place is okay. Admission seems high for what they have. This was one of our museum stops while in town, but we toured better museums in Cheyenne.

Fun for young and old alike, and so well done. One part historical education, one part bring-out-the-kid-in-you. You can easily spend an hour or two here, then go next door to the Accomplice Brewery for lunch/dinner.

It's in the old Union Station which is cool! Interesting artifacts and a LOT of information. There is an impressive miniature train upstairs.

If you love trains then this a "must see". For you a half day would allow you to read all the explanations of the exhibits. For others, at least a half hour to roam through the extensive exhibits. Modest admission fee but the best deal...More
