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

The indoor exhibits are geared towards young children, and our grandkids (ages 4 & 7) loved it. It included some historical exhibits, but mostly hands-on areas for the kids and a series of model trains. If you're more into the life-size trains, skip the indoor museum and walk the outdoor exhibit of train cars (no ticket required). You cannot climb... More

This is really 4 museums in one. We loved the railroad and classic car exhibits. Well worth spending a good part of the day. We went on a weekday and we almost had the place to ourselves. Glad we came.

Nice collection of trains and wagons. Difficult to photograph with the sun shade above it. But worth to visit!!

Located within the Union Station, which also houses a Cowboy Museum, Browning Gun Museum and a car museum. I enjoyed all of them, but I wish I had more time to spend reading all the displays, I was on a schedule and only spent about 2 hours in all the museums.

This museum (housed with the Browning Gun Museum at Ogden's historic Union Station) is well worth the trip. If you are going to go to Golden Spike from Salt Lake City, make sure to stop in and go through this museum, which basically completes the story that the exhibits at Golden Spike start, complete with working model railroads of the...

What a great deal! For only five bucks you get three museums. The railroad museum is quite extensive and you can go inside a mail car and an Army medical car. There is also an in depth display of Browning firearms and a small, but high quality car display. We also took a side trip to Hill AFB to see... More

$5 admission gets you into 3 museums. All three collections are small, but very high quality. At first, when I saw that the car museum has only about a dozen autos, I was disappointed, but then I saw the quality of the collection and left completely satisfied. Same with the train collection and the gun collection---small but nice. The rolling... More
