For 50 years this stately and historic depot served as a major hub for transcontinental rail service. Today, it remains a monument to grand rail stations of the early 20th-century and includes four museums: the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Browning Kimball Car Museum and the Browning Firearms Museum.

We live in Ogden and have gone there many times. Our kids love the railroad museum with the interactive things - especially the gauge train that winds through several exhibits. Also nice are the engines outside. (Back when the railroad was the main mode of transportation, Ogden was one of the main stops throughout the nation.) The old cars are... More

This is a good short stop for a collection of museums. They have a gun museum, train museum, classic car museum, cowboy museum, and an art gallery.

Drove to Ogden based on Sunset Magazines comments about the city. The Union Station is what a train station should be. They have created 5 museums in the space as well as a restaurant. There is a small cowboy museum, an art gallery, a railroad museum a classic car museum and a gun museum. The cowboy museum is small but... More

Had some extra time on a Saturday afternoon. Stopped in with my son. Had a great time going thru all the old trains and going thru the old depot.

We love visiting the Union Station. I went growing up and now we get to take our children there. It used to be you could climb on the small train on the side of the building but I guess that's changed. Sad, but understandable I guess.

The car museum was not a huge hit with the kids but the train museum was a hit. The kids enjoyed watching the train go over their... More

The amazing Browning Firearms museum, historic trains and a fascinating history of the region's place in locomotive history. The building itself is worth a visit. I was pleased to see the Utah Merçi Traincar in nice condition (but why is it sitting outside in harsh weather?). See separate review for the Browning firearms museum.

We dined with a group of 8 for dinner. Service was good and the food was very good. Beef medallions are excellent, pork steak very good. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. Having a reservation was helpful and we will be back!!

Been one of our favorite restaurants for more than 15 years. They have anything you could want from steak and prime rib, hamburgers, shrimp and seafood and many other signature dishes known only to the chefs and the patrons. Their desserts are a master in and of themselves...warm caramel bread pudding, warm giant skillet chocolate chip cookies and a variety... More
