Train museum, along with cars and firearms, is set in the old charming Romanesque revival Union Station. Displays are well explained and interesting. Outside they display real trains and have quite a variety.

The station itself is very pretty inside and also contains a great restaurant. There are multiple museums all included in your entrance price. In each museum, we were greeted by pleasant and knowledgeable guides. I would give a couple hours for your visit.

History of the railroad coming across the continent. A must see for all visitors. After seeing the museum must go to the Golden Spike!

I visit Ogden a couple of times a year, and always leave time for a trip to Union Station. I never get tired of the static exhibits (in particular, the Wattis-Dumke Model Railroad and the Browning Firearms Exhibit). This year, we had a family reunion event in two of the event rooms at the station, and it was a lovely... More

Oh the stories this place could tell. I can only imagine the people who have walked through the station. The whole museum is full of adventure. I love to watch the model trains and follow them around the tracks. There are so many photo ops both inside and out. My kids get a kick out of the automobile room too.... More

We had been here 3 years before we tried this place. We had eaten at a sister restaurant many times and finally decided to try Union Grill. My son and I ate there the night my wife on a trip and we loved it. We took my wife when she returned and she was surprised as well as I had... More

The Brownings Arms Museum, Mineral Museum, and Car Museum as well as the Trains and building itself are all worth the token price.

Life size dinosaurs and some 'scary' audio as you walk the park and see many different critters. (Don't let their 'millions of years' myth throw you as the 'science' of age dating has many built in assumptions and is therefore NOT science but speculation) it is really quite well presented.)

If you have an interest in trains, this is worth a visit. Several different types of old trains are on display, and it is possible to see them up close. Unfortunately, the station building was closed when I was there, but it was still worth a visit just to walk around the grounds. There are some great photo opportunities if... More
