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

Before you even go inside you can enjoy the historic architecture of Union Station, and the train yard where train engines and cars can be walked around, touched, and if you pay admission inside you can get a guided tour inside some of the train cars. Just be sure not to cross the tracks behind the station, as they are... More

I love trains, their part in history and this museum has that and more! Union Station has played a prominent role in American history along with 25th street and this is one of our favorite places to visit, regardless of the season. The Browning gun museum has an incredible display of firepower through the ages and the Browning-Kimball car museum... More

Fun place to visit and then stop and have lunch at Union Station. Lot's of trains and cars to look at. Kind of expensive but fun.

Someplace to take the kiddies to see the old puffers, with plenty of eating places nearby and a cafe or two, it makes for a good family day. As well as being right off the UTA Front Runner you can ride a train to or from all the way to Provo.

This museum provides a nice feel for the history of railroads. There are other museums in the same complex.

The trains were really neat. The museum inside was also interesting, but not as cool as the engines and cars at either end of the Union station outside. You can go inside some of them with a guide. I don't know if there are set times or if they just do the tours when asked. We just happened to be... More

Ogden RR Museum is a real treat for RR lovers. There is so much to see and many unique items in this museum. Tressels from the old track that spanned Great Salt Lake are here. The original building's freight scale, a handy dancer, lots of wonderful pictures are all well-displayed. Lots of history here. We have been to many RR... More
