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

We really enjoyed our time at Union Station, all four museums were interesting and we learned much, the volunteers were great. It was fun to see a golden spike! But the greatest part was the Browning Museum, we had our own tour guide that was very passionate about the guns and history. What a hidden GEM,

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.
