Ogden - Union Station

The historic Union Station in downtown Ogden has been converted into a museum complex with galleries, gift shops and restaurants. The station is just South of the new Ogden Intermodal Hub which is serviced by the FrontRunner Commuter Rail and a variety of buses and other transportation options.

The Union Station currently includes the Utah Railroad Museum. This museum includes both artifacts from America's rich railroading history along with several engines and railroad cars. The John M. Browning Arms Museum displays a selection of fire arms, and the Browning Kimball Classic Car Collection includes displays from the golden age of car manufacturing.

Union Station is a must see attraction in the heart of downtown Ogden, Utah. The station is at the end of Historic 25th Street section of Ogden which houses numerous craft stores and trendy cafes. Come to think of it, I should say that Union Station is at the beginning of the street. Ogden is a railroad town and the street is historic because the street was adjacent to the railway station.

The station displays many historic locamotives and houses a museum.

Ogden plays an important role in transportation history since it is the closest major station to promontory point...where the transcontinental railroad met.
