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

The gun and railroad exhibits were really good, the 20 cars or so they have are cool, the wild west exhibit wasn't too exciting. It's a nice thing to do it you have a couple hours to kill.

We spent several hours at Union Station yesterday and had a wonderful time. At the Browning Firearms Museum the volunteer Darwin became our personal tour guide and shared an amazing amount of information and stories well beyond what we expected. He couldn't have been more helpful. In the Browning-Kimball Car Museum volunteer Steve went above and beyond to help us... More

Loved seeing the Union Station as well as the beautiful antique cars. I have never seen cars from that era, which was just about when my dad started driving. Plus the Union Station was where my grandfather started his railroad career. Shall be back to Ogden to check it out more thoroughly because my families origin is from that town.... More

So the one thing I really found fascinating was Utah's ability to so greatly preserve the history of the old wild west towns. The Station is very well built and reflects time frozen. Standing in or around the station... is the back- drop of the mountains and the old town. Enjoy!

I really liked the history of the railroad across the great salt lake. If you do the browning gun museum,old cars, and railroad equipment it will take most of the day but worth it. There is a cafe for lunch or refreshments

Not only did Union Station have the GREAT Locomotive Display, but there were some Magnificent 1920s' -30s' cars there too. Don't miss it.

We visited Union Station & walked through all four museums. A docent gave a tour of railroad cars outside which was most fun. Those engines are mighty big. We were able to go inside the US ARMY medical car & the mail car very fun. Inside great display with the history of the railroad. The Browning gun museum is awesome... More
