The Union Station’s active volunteers provide a visitor-friendly learning experience in a welcoming and educational environment. As a small museum with limited staff, our knowledgeable volunteers serve as the face of our organization and our greatest connection to the community. Volunteers are essential partners in the operation of historic Ogden Union Station as an educational and cultural resource.

Once an active train station, Union Station is now home to event spaces, two art galleries, and four museums: the Utah State Railroad Museum, John M. Browning Firearms Museum, Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum, and Utah State Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
