There’s a vacant lot at the southeast corner of O’Neil Avenue and 17th Street, located just across the street from the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. Staked in the ground at the lot’s northeast corner is a sign advertising the long-postponed Cheyenne Children’s Museum.

It’s a story of continuous postponement – proposed plans falling through and supply delays related to COVID-19 keeping construction materials from being obtained by the local crew tasked with breaking ground on the long-awaited building. For now, there’s no concrete plan for when the museum will really begin to exist in physical form.
