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

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
