The building is located at the end of 25th Street. It is a nice and well maintained building with a history which goes back to the Golden Spike years. It was rebuilt two times (with a different architecture). It houses four different and interesting museums. One can easily spend a morning or afternoon around and in Union Station.

The Union Station is just kind of a cool place, in general. We did a haunted tour - we didn't necessarily see any ghosts, but it was kind of cool to explore this interesting, historical bldg. at night. There's a museum, a great restaurant, gift shop, reception center, and cool old trains to take pictures by (used a LOT for... More

There are 4 museums in the old Union Station building - railroad, firearms, classic car, and cowboy & western heritage. All were great, but we particularly enjoyed the railroad and classic car museums. All the museums are small, so they don't take too long to visit. The volunteer at the classic car museum was particularly friendly and helpful. A great... More

If you are looking for something for everyone this is it. The historic Union Station building in Ogden, Utah, is the home for four museums and two galleries. Included: Railroad museum, model train museum, Browning firearms museum, antique cars, cowboy museum and art exhibit. Even quilts. The museum is a one admission attraction but free for veterans and their families.... More

Had a fun time learning about the history and culture of an old western cattle town. As stated in other post, there are 4 museums and a display outside on the grounds. The woman in the Cowboy Museum knew everything there was to know about every artifact. She was a hoot. Headed up to the Browning Gun Museum on the... More

I've been here for model train expos, Christmas parties and meetings. This time was for a going away lunch for two retiring coworkers. Of course it was business conversation so that it could be counted as an official offsite work event. The food and service was good but the view was the coolest (if you enjoy your trains). Again, good... More

Union Station has 4 museums, The Utah State Railroad Museum, The Browning Gun Museum, the Cowboy Museum, and The Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum. The admission price is cheap around $4 but that admission price gives you entry to all 4 museums so there's no separate price to get into each museum. There's something historic and fun in each museum for... More

Union Station is an old train depot with outdoor displays as well as indoor exhibits. There are 4 museums in the station - Cowboy Museum, Car Museum, Railroad Museum, and Browning Gun Museum. Each museum was educational. The best was the RR Museum which recounted the story of how the Union and Southern Pacific RRs rushed to lay down track... More

Union Station has a lot going on within its walls. The primary draw for me was the railroad museum, which had an extensive display regarding the Union Pacific railroad and the history behind it. Additionally there is the Browning Firearm museum which was a pretty impressive collection of firearms. If you are into that sort of thing, it's quite a... More
