CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Cheyenne Depot Museum debuted a new addition Friday making it easier for guests to visit.

It added ADA accessible doors.

The new doors are at the museum’s entrance.

Museum Executive Director Christy McCarthy said the new doors have been in the plans for between 5 and 10 years but the COVID-19 shutdown gave the museum the opportunity to complete the project.

She said the doors cost around $50,000 and were paid for using funds from the Wyoming Brewers Festival.

"We're really excited to give access to not only our visitors but also our locals and let them be able to enjoy the museum the way everyone should," McCarthy said.

She said the doors should last about 25 years but require maintenance every 5 to 10 years.
