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.

This tells a fascinating story of Ogden and the Union Pacific. The displays are great and the diorama of the push over the mountains makes you appreciate the courage of the Chinese workers who made it possible.

We eat here a lot. It's fun to take the Front Runner up to the station and eat lunch. We went for dinner last week for the first time. (We always go for lunch) The place was packed.

If you like old cars, this place has a few really good ones, but only a few. There is a fairly neat train exhibit which was not inexpensive to create. You may wonder why my review is marked 'very good'. That is because of the world-class Browning Museum of Firearms. These originals come from the mind and handiwork of one... More

Everyone in our group (from 2-70) enjoyed this visit but I don't think you could stretch it more than 2 hours with little kids. A must for model train enthusiasts.

If you are into history and looking for a place where you can see history from guns to cars, this is the place to go. The three museums are loaded with history. The Browning gun museum is my favorite. The volunteer tour guides are very helpful.

Visit this place when you have some time or you'll be sad. The trains outside are amazing, the train museum inside is something my kids want to see every year. The miniature train is a big attraction and there are wonderful surprises and historical features everywhere. We love coming here!

My husband and I went here when we were dating. It's a beautiful building. The 3 different museums are slightly boring. We had a male volunteer who did his best to make the train museum fun. I don't have an interest in trains, cars, or guns. Perhaps for a true fan this museum would be more fun.

We made a day of visiting Ogden - first the Hill Aerospace Museum then on to Union Station. We had lunch at Union Grill then toured the 4 museums-small but filled with interesting exhibits. One admission price includes all 4 museums. The railroad museum explained the transcontinental railroad history- Nicely done and interesting for both adults and children. The classic... More
