Union Station, Ogden

Architectural Building · Historic Site
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.

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. An art gallery 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.

  • Union Station is awesome! One single museum admission ticket grants access to the railroad museum, a vintage car collection (which is stunning) and to the Browning Firearms museum. Every exhibit showcases things local to Ogden a d unique to the region. Outside, the beautiful station makes for an excellent backdrop to photos or if your just looking for cool old architecture too. The large train exhibit is definitely worth a visit too. The train show in early March is such a fun event and fills the entire station on both floors and has something for anyone regardless of age!
  • For the price to get in, it's an incredible deal! Multiple museums and galleries. A great place to explore and learn about Utah's history. Great for tourists AND locals. Go more than once, they like to change it up!
