We had a nice time at Union Station. If you go, I highly recommend eating there. The food is fantastic and the staff is wonderful. Very unique gifts in the little shop.

We totally underestimated how much time we would spend here. There is four different museums with different emphasis. None of them are very large. In fact two are very small. It only takes one admission for all four. Cowboy Museum - This is the smallest of the four and will have the most limited interest. I mean really little like... More

The union station museum is great for railroad buffs, but upstairs is the real gem. The Browning Firearms Museum contains many extremely rare guns. Some are original prototypes of Browning's most famous weapons. A great history of Browning's work.

We spent most of the day here. I went with my parents and my dad really enjoyed the Browning Gun museum and the old cars. I liked all of the train engines and cars outside the best. They do let you inside some of them with a guide.

Ogden being a railroad town, come check this out. Trains to climb around on and see these massive marvels of transportation.

$12 for the three of us to see 4 really good museums. The train museum (complete with the Golden Spike in a safe) had a terrific explanation and display of the Union and Pacific railroads! The gentlemen guide in the classic car museum was very knowledgeable...I see alot of classic cars and had not seen the likes of many of... More

Nice little thing to do in downtown with some interesting things to see and learn about the trains. They even have a little car museum that had some awesome older cars on display

Union Station is worth a visit to Ogden. Even though the museum was closed when we visited on a Sunday, the big hardware was accessible (and free) outside. We enjoyed reading about the 5 historic engines on display as well as a number of passenger cars, utility cars, cabooses, and other railroad hardware awaiting restoration. Perhaps the finest piece is... More

We all had fun walking around see how it all started, seeing how the trains have evolved over the years. We didn't get to go in the trains, we herd that you could, but we did go just before closing so maybe they were locked up for the day?

There are several old trains on display under a large cover outside the station. Of particular interest to me is the huge Union Pacific gas turbine locomotive. Enormous! Note there is also an old Army hospital car and an old mail car on display. If you are lucky enough to catch the volunteer there at the station (he seems to... More
