The museum is inside the old railway station in Ogden. There is a nice exhibit inside with lots of history, a play area for kids and several functioning model trains. Outside there are a bunch of full-sized locomotives including a train car from the 2002...More

Nice and large! The four go together well with the train and arms being the largest exhibits. Spent a good 2-3hrs with my wife and had an enjoyable time. Available wheelchair was much appreciated!

Outside the old station is a wide variety of historic rolling stock, some very unique items. You can get up close and even crawl on a few units. Inside there are interesting exhibits on the history of US railroad development and an extensive toy train...More

What a neat museum. Actual trains and "stuff". A great history lesson for train buffs and anyone interested in the history of our country.

I am not a huge train fan. I would say the museum is average at best. Model trains were cool and I do feel the staff works very hard to make it a good experience for people and they have great knowledge of railroad history.

Don't miss seeing D&RG steam engine 223 which is being restored on Saturdays at the north end of the depot track-side.

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

There are some food things about this site. One is the building itself (Union Station) which while not nearly as impressive as other old railway stations such as Denver or i. KC, is still nice. The second is the price. Veey affordable (3 for kids,...More
