It appears that some people limit their visit to the free outside exhibit of locomotives and cars. Too bad. The inside museum has a very interesting description of the development and construction of the transcontinental railroad supplemented by a 45 minute Modern Marvels video. There...More

If you're a train buff, definitely check this out if you're traveling by Ogden on I-15. The open-air museum is open on Sunday - when many Utah attractions are closed - and admission is free. An interesting collection of mostly locomotives shoehorned into a very...More

Came here during winter. IT was pretty cool to see the different trains and engines and how they were built, but after a while it kinda felt repetitive to me. It was cold outside, as it is outside under a shelter. I know people come...More

Love the museum, the train station and all of the trains inside and outside. The outside exhibition is for free and anyone can just walk in. Sadly there were kids running over the roofs of the engines and I saw a ton of vandalism. If...More
