MUSEUMS

Utah State Railroad Museum

The Utah State Railroad Museums in Ogden is the state’s tribute to the role of the “iron horse” in connecting Utah to the rest of the nation. This museum features restored locomotives and cars, some dating back to 1800s. Exhibits trace out the Utah’s tie to the building of the transcontinental railroad and share the sights and sounds from the golden age of rail travel, including a locomotive simulator that offers an engineer’s view of the rails. Personal histories and unique artifacts bring to life a great American tradition.

 

Browning Firearms Museum

Granted over 100 patents and credited with developing some of the most influential and innovated firearms and mechanical processes still in use today, this museum features a excellent sampling of some of Browning’s greatest works and covers categories ranging from single-shot rifles to fully automatic heavy machine guns.  Examples of the firearms on display are the Winchester Model 1885, Winchester Model 1894, Browning Auto-5, Browning Hi-Power, Winchester Model 1897, M1919 Browning, M1911, M2 Browning, and Colt Model 1903 / 1908 Pocket Hammerless.

 

Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum

The automobiles on display are examples of the Golden Age of motorcar history. Vehicles range from a 1901 single cylinder Oldsmobile to a 1930 16 cylinder Cadillac. Running boards, huge fenders, oversize match lit headlights and rumble seats are reminders of an extravagant era.
