For 50 years this stately and historic depot served as a major hub for transcontinental rail service. Today, it remains a monument to grand rail stations of the early 20th-century and includes four museums: the Utah State Railroad Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Browning Kimball Car Museum and the Browning Firearms Museum.

At $4 for seniors and $5 for adults this offers a variety of items at a very reasonable price. The John Browning Arms Museum is the most extensive of the four. The gun cases can be view from both sides so you can see both sides of the gun. The Browning Auto museum is not very large, but all the... More

What a nice visit! Four museums in one location for just $5. Very interesting and great views of the mountains as backdrop against historic 25th Street.

The same building holds museums devoted to trains, cars, and John Browning, the firearms designer. The Browning museum is particularly interesting, tracing his designs from the 'old west' to some still used on today's battlefields.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn and tried this place the first night. It was a block away and very convenient to walk to. I was alone and so I was seated very promptly. The decorations were first rate, and the place was obviously buzzing even on a Monday night - a good sign. I ordered the Asian Rice Bowl... More

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

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
