4 nice museums for $5? Unbelievable. My favorite is the John M. Browning museum upstairs. For anyone interested in firearms, this unassuming museum has quite a few "holy grails" of firearms displayed, including hand-built prototypes made by Mr. Browning himself. We also enjoyed the cars, the railroad museum and outdoor trains as well. Very nice place to spend $5 and... More

My mom suggested a diversion via a commuter train to Ogden (from Draper) for the ride and lunch at Union Station. It sounded great so we...my mom and her husband , my girlfriend and myself...hopped on board and headed out. The ride was relatively quick and the weather fantastic! The station was almost empty but reminded us all of a... More

They have a great selection of dishes. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed. By the way, when you're there be sure to try their French Onion soup. You'll be hooked!

Our group has visited many railroad museums around the world. On the south side of the station they have positioned a number of western road pieces of rolling stock. Many are Union Pacific including the famous turbine. Some are under a roof for protection, but the ones not are rusting away. The signs do not match the equipment. The tracks... More

The Union Station is a really reasonable tourist attraction that really tells the history of Ogden. There is the Railroad Museum, The Ogden Pioneer Rodeo Museum, the John M. Browning Gun Museum, the Car Museum, the Myra Powell Art Gallery and a restaurant inside the Union Station. Outside there is a great display of trains. A fun and interesting place... More

We've been to many Union Stations and this one is totally different. It doesn't have shopping and restaurants, but lots of museums. There is a train, cowboy, gun, car and art museum in this location. It is very inexpensive to get in. So if you are in the area I would suggest dropping by for a visit.

Excellent food, great atmosphere, exceptional value. The buffalo wings are amazing and as good as the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. My personal favorite is the Chicken Salad Sandwich. Also the french onion soup is to die for!
