The Cheyenne Trolley is a comfortable and affordable way to tour historic Cheyenne.

Passengers board the trolley at the Cheyenne Depot and Visitor Center, one of the most recognizable buildings in Wyoming. From there it’s on to the Nelson Museum of the West, host of Indian artifacts and the work of renowned silversmith Edward H. Bohlin. A two-day pass to all of the museums on the tour is included with the Trolley Plus Pass.

Next the Trolley heads to the Wyoming State Museum. Founded in 1895, the museum manages a wide-ranging series of exhibits and interpretive displays. Across a greenspace is the Wyoming Capitol, (The Capitol Building is closed during 2017 for renovations) home to the Wyoming Legislature and four of the five Wyoming statewide elected officials.

Leaving downtown, the trolley travels north through several of Cheyenne's oldest neighborhoods toward Frontier and Lions Parks. Lions Park is home to the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, which offers a broad sampling of flowers, tropical plants, herbs and cacti. Just across the way is the Old West Museum, displaying unique exhibits highlighting the impacts rodeo has had on Cheyenne, and Cheyenne on rodeo.

Heading south again, the tour passes through historic Cheyenne neighborhoods where many houses date back to the frontier days of Wyoming, including one home in particular: the Historic Governors’ Mansion. Now a state-designated Historic Site, the mansion served as residence for Wyoming governors from 1905-1976.

After leaving the mansion, it’s only a few short blocks back to the Depot. And remember, if you purchased a Plus Pass, it counts as a two-day pass into all of the tour's museums.
