The Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation
Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation, a tax exempt, non-profit foundation has been established to create and administer a permanent endowment for the future support and expansion of the Cheyenne Depot Museum, which is located in the historic Union Pacific Railroad Depot in downtown Cheyenne.
A National Historic Site
After a multi-year effort the Cheyenne Depot Museum was granted a National Historic Site designation. The former Union Pacific Depot has come a long way since the beginning of renovation more than 10 years ago. The National Historic Site designation has generated much interest and traffic to downtown Cheyenne and the Cheyenne Depot Museum Complex. Come experience the clear blue skies, the sites and sounds that vagabonds, pioneers, cattle barons, gamblers and outlaws saw and felt over a hundred years ago in Cheyenne, Wyoming!
