5. Messenger's Old West Museum  616 Crook Ave

Not just about the mail on horseback.

 

4. Wyoming State Museum 2301 Central Avenue

3. Cheyenne Depot Museum 121 W. 15th St. 

As train museums go, this may be as good as any.

Everything associated with western women.

 

1. The Nelson Museum 1714 Carey Ave.
