The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad Depot is a former Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad depot in Montevideo, Minnesota, United States. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The depot is now the Milwaukee Road Heritage Center, a railroad museum that focuses on interpreting the history of the Milwaukee Road as it influenced Montevideo in the late 19th century through the 1980s. The Milwaukee Road Heritage Center also displays donated railroad equipment, such as a 200-ton crane, passenger and baggage cars, freight cars, a Plymouth Locomotive Works 44-ton switching locomotive, and a 600 horsepower (450 kW) diesel switcher built by Electro-Motive Division in 1939. The group has also restored a turntable that provides access to a 26-stall roundhouse.[2]
