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

Union Station in Ogden houses 4 museums and 2 galleries. The firearms museum is very well laid out and extensive. The railroad museum is interesting (I love the miniature train that wends its way through several walls of the building). The cowboy and western heritage museum is interesting (though it felt a bit disjointed). And the car museum is excellent,... More

We came as a group of 16 people and had made a reservation so we were seated right away. The food was good and we were all served at a very timely manner.

I brought two little boys here, ages 9 and 3, and they really enjoyed most of it. The guns were a little lost on them, but I could see how that could very much interest others. They loved the model railroad and then kids area. They also loved looking at the old cars. It was a little cold outside, so... More

This museum contains nearly everything you'd ever want to know about guns. Centered around the Browning family it tells the history of gun manufacture, and has on exhibit many Browning guns, including some which were never mass produced, first ever made models, and personal shotguns of the Browning family. If you're into guns, this is the place to learn about... More
