For 50 years this stately and historic depot served as a major hub for transcontinental rail service. Today, it remains a monument to grand rail stations of the early 20th-century and includes four museums: the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Browning Kimball Car Museum and the Browning Firearms Museum.

Trains and train history, the Browning gun collection, classic cars, an art collection-and the union station rail terminal building. All for one admission price They sure could build grand buildings in those days of old. Nice model train display. Only disappointment is none of the rail cars are open for display.

Browning museum was the best of the bunch. Auto museum was short. The Wild West museum was also small. The train museum was great!

This truly is a great place to visit, we were able to go through the Browning Museum, see antique cars and the train history. I really like the inside of the station. We were able to see some of the older trains outside and the train that has the torch from when the Olympics were held in Salt Lake. Overall... More

My family and I went on a recent trip here. Overall it's a nice place and we really enjoyed that it was in the old Union Station building. There are 4 small museums and a small art gallery. The museums have 4 themes: Western (think cowboy), Train, Car, and John Browning (famous gun inventor). The Western museum was very small,... More

The Union Station has a rich history in Ogden, UT. From the history of the Railroad, to the Browning Gun Museum and classic cars the Union Station has something interesting for every member of the family. Tours are self guided and only about $5 per person. Make sure to check out the trains outside and walk up 25th street as... More

Union Station is a great piece of history that shouldn't be missed if you visit Utah!!! Until the early 1950's Ogden was the biggest railway hub in the United States. Over 200 hundred trains a day came through Ogden. Which is why 25th Street (2 bit street) was well known throughout the world from 1870 through after WWII. You could... More

See the trains, colorful horses, and the hall. You can see the history of the trains and they are great for pictures.Unfortunately the hall was closed when I visited on 4th of July.

I visited with my brother for a film showing about the paranormal. The venue, Union Station was the perfect place for an experience such as this one. The building has lots of history behind the restored facade from very uplifting stories to the more dark days. The staff was very friendly and helpful as our event was after hours and... More
