Fun for the kids to see all the train cars. They are able to climb some of them. You can take pictures on them. It is overall exciting!

This is one of the many museums inside of Union Station. There is a great display inside the museum which included information on "The Golden Spike."

We come here frequently when the kids are tired of shopping downtown, or if we want an easy free side trip for an hour or so.

If you are looking for engines, guns, and classic cars this is it. Housed in the original train station the museum outlines Ogden's vast rail road history as well as showcasing Browning guns and classic cars. The huge model train set goes through 4 or 5 rooms!

Extremely well organized exhibits, with a great interactive area for the kids and very instructive displays for all ages. Ask to see the History Channel movie on the construction of the Trans Continental railway - it's fascinating.

We went back to Union Station in Ogden, Utah and took a look at the trains and museum. It was good to go back and look at the trains again. This time my favorite was seeing the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Torch Rail Car. It is a well done exhibit of train engine and rail cars.

This was a ball! The grandkids took us to see the trains while in Ogden. It was super interesting and the gift shop was well stocked. You get to inspect actual Trains. No replicas folks😎 Must see if in Ogden Utah!
