The arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad to a dusty spot on the Great Plains led to the birth of Cheyenne. You can explore this history and the engineering marvels of the railroad at Cheyenne’s Depot Museum.

This museum is excellent for the solo adventurer, but it’s also phenomenal for families. The Depot Museum features interactive displays of railroads, including several hands-on exhibits for children to explore. The museum resides inside the Historic UPRR Depot, the last remaining grand railroad station on the original transcontinental route.

However, the Cheyenne Depot isn’t just a museum. It also hosts Accomplice Beer Company, a delicious restaurant and brewery. As you dine, you can watch trains pull in and out of the working depot. And in the winter, the gorgeous depot lobby hosts a farmer’s market carrying local goods.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Cheyenne, Wyoming!
