Trip Planner: USA / Utah / Wasatch Range / Ogden / Union Station
Union Station, also known as Ogden Union Station, is a train station in Ogden, Utah, at the west end of Historic 25th Street, just south of the Ogden Intermodal Transit Center. Formerly the junction of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads, its name reflects the common appellation of train stations whose tracks and facilities are shared by railway companies.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Union Station by using our Ogden day trip planning tool.
No longer a railway hub, the building remains a cultural hub: it houses the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Spencer S. Eccles Rail Center, the John M. Browning Firearms Museum, Utah Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum, and an art gallery for local and regional artists every month. The Myra Powell Gallery features traveling exhibits and the Station's permanent art collection. Union Station Research Library has an extensive collection of historic Ogden photographs and documents available to the public.
The last long-distance passenger train to use Union Station was Amtrak's Pioneer in May 1997. The adjacent Ogden Intermodal Transit Center serves the Utah Transit Authority's (UTA) FrontRunner commuter rail line.
In December of 2022, Ogden City entered into a purchase agreement with Union Pacific Railroad to buy the land under and around the station for $5.5 million USD. They plan to pursue development of the area around the station into a downtown business and tourist hub, as well as potentially bring rail service back to the station itself.

Awesome place!! For starters there are like 5 little museums inside the Union Station Museum. You have Trains, Cars, Guns (Browning museum), Cowboy / Rodeo stuff and some art exhibits. Amazing place to see the history from around the area! Go there, it's well worth the visit! Also the guys in the Browning museum were super helpful and knowledgeable of the exhibits, but, everyone we spoke to was really helpful and pointed out stuff to us. We had a lovely time here! Thanks Everyone!!
Such great museums. We appreciate all the helpful docents who shared so much good information with us. For $7 a person you get a train museum, western museum, car museum and Browning gun museum. You learn a lot about Ogden and Utah history and it is definitely worth a visit.
Would have been better if there was a volunteer on deck so we could have gone inside the train. On normal days it would be understandable that a volunteer would not be available but when offering free admission to entire museum for a festival, it would not be too much of a stretch to expect a volunteer at every station. Please note. I'm putting my admission as free because it was in celebration of some festival that was going on
The front desk lady was very nice, and explained the layout to me. I loved the little cowboy section, of course the train section, and the antique cars were really cool. Joe was the guide for the firearms section, and he was amazing. We talked guns for a while. Overall really friendly staff and volunteers, I just can't remember everyone's names.
Oh man, we love this place so much. What a great museum. My boys are obsessed with the little train models that go around the different tracks. My only negative about this place is that the one man that is often in the Browning gun portion is really not super patient with kids. I want my kids to go to museums and think learning is fun, so I want it to be a positive experience. He hasn’t ever gotten after my kids, but I’ve heard him bark at other kids several times before for doing normal kid things, like asking him a question while he was finishing up a sentence. That type of thing does not fly with that man. And no, kids shouldn’t do that, but they are still learning and I think they could be given some grace. It’s not like they blurted out something irrelevant while he was talking, they were listening to him and learning and interested. Anyway, everything else is great. That dude stresses me out.
