Located within the historic Union Pacific Depot in Cheyenne, the Cheyenne Depot Museum traces the history and formation of the city as the Transcontinental Railroad was built. The building itself is an iconic landmark and a perfect example of the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture. The building of the railroad following the Civil War was one of the most important developments for the economic and technological development of the country. The museum illustrates this fascinating journey through its exhibits and tells the story of the city of Cheyenne in relation to the Transcontinental railroad and the larger picture of the United States. One of the most popular exhibits at the museum and an absolute must-visit for rail history or model railroad enthusiasts is the model railroad with hand-crafted pieces, painstakingly put together over 30 years. Part of a private collection, The Union Central and Northern (UC&N) Model Railroad of Harry S. Brunk is on permanent display at the museum.
