Visitors to the Utah State Railroad Museum at Union Station are treated to a variety of interactive and pictoral displays and artifacts illustrating the construction of the transcontinental railroad. As visitors enter the Railroad Museum they pass under timbers used to construct the historic Lucin Cutoff across the Great Salt Lake. In the museum theater enjoy a movie about the Big Boy Locomotives that ran from Ogden to Cheyenne. In March 2011 the museum unveiled it’s newest exhibit of the original Golden Spike Safe and Utah’s Cenntenial Gold Spike. Weight your group on the Station’s original baggage scale.
Beautiful historic train station! The train museum is fun, and worth a walk-through, but unless you are a gun enthusiast with a lot of knowledge, go ahead and skip the Browning Gun museum upstairs. Check the calendar, because Union Station is constantly hosting community events. My favorite events are the paranormal tours in October!
Stop by the Union Grill for lunch. You can watch the trains go by while you eat!
Union Station is a must see in Ogden if you are visiting. It is at the end of Historic 25th street which is a must see as well. It has large rooms which can be rented for large events like proms and weddings. There is a Country Swing Dancing group that rents the place every Wednesday from 8:30 to 11 and costs 5$ to get in. They have classes during the first half hour and it is always a blast to go. The old trains are super fun to walk around and look at. They used to let you go climb on them but someone must have gotten hurt because that is no longer the case. Union Grill is delicious and worth checking out. I haven't been in the museum since I was little.
