Took Frontrunner from SLC to Ogden. Walked a little bit to the Railroad museum. What a great place for adults and kids. There is the railroad museum, western museum, and classic car museum. The kids loved all of them. Railroad museum has a small train running through. The landscape for the little train was done so well. Husband enjoyed the... More

If you have an interest in trains at all, you will enjoy this place. IT is a train museum that is in an actual operating train station that is a very old historic building. There are several actual trains of different types that you can see, touch and even climb on some. Kids especially love this aspect! Also inside the... More

Loved seeing the displays. This museum has a mixture or steam and diesel locomotives of a number of different railroads. One of my favorites was the former Santa Fe Alco locomotive from the Utah Railway. A must stop for train buffs

This is great little surprise! There are 4 museums in one called Union Station. When we paid for our tickets, there was a "conductor" waiting to take us outside to the actual trains. We toured a medical train (never knew there was such a train) and the mail car. Both very interesting. Then we looked at other engines there. We... More

This is a great museum with lots of trains. Even if you are not a train enthusiast. The trains are huge.

There were a lot of trains to see outside and take pictures of. Great for all of the family. To see the Olympic train that was fun.

We enjoyed visiting the Utah State Railroad Museum, which is part of the set of museums at Union Station area of Ogden, Utah. We first visited the outdoor exhibits that included historic train engines and cars to see. These were very interesting. We liked the exhibits in the railroad museum. The one thing that we really enjoyed was seeing the... More

Stumbled onto it during a stop at a Utah visitor's center. Much of it is indoors and most of the outdoor portion is under cover so a rainy day shouldn't stop a visit. Didn't stop us. Fascinating history of many engines and crews. Many photos and facts about railroad history across America. The record for numbers of miles of railroad... More

The Utah State RR Museum is one of 4 museums in Union Station. It described the early struggles of the state and its entrepreneurs to build a RR over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Displays are informative and well laid out. As a result of our visit here, we are headed to Promontory Summit where the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific... More

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed every bit of this place. There are actually a few museums in one and the staff/volunteers are so friendly. The gentleman in the old cars museum was so knowledgeable and you could tell how much he truly loved what he does. He told us some of the greatest stories about some all of the... More
