It was great to walk around the outside of the trains, and read a few of the informative signs. I would love to have been able to climb up and inside of them. I guess you need to catch a tour to do that. I've been twice and haven't been there at the right time to get the tour. We... More

Loved the engines outside...and the antique beautiful cars inside....and model train layouts....and the old western saddles and memorabilia....and the Browning firearms exhibit....So much to do ! The most amazing miniature and working ! replica firearms are on display... tiny shotguns that really shoot tiny shotgun shells....and many many more small versions of the real thing meticulously crafted to actually work....

It's a tradition to ride the Frontrunner here on my son's birthday but it's a great place to stop when we're in Ogden also. The museum is fun and informational, we never get tired of going through it, and the trains outside are a huge bonus. Love this place!

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.
