If you happen to be in Utah, it is worthwhile to make a trip to Ogden to visit the historic Union Station. This attraction houses an auto museum called the Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum, which showcases an impressive selection of automobiles and auto paraphernalia from the Golden Age of automotive history.

The Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum features the remains of an outstanding collection of classic cars that was assembled by avid collectors Matt and Barbara Browning. Matt and Barbara began collecting old cars in 1971, and they dedicated the museum at the Union Station in 1981 to give the public a chance to view their stunning automobiles. Nine of their cars were donated to the museum after they passed away in the late 1990s. These cars are used in the Ogden’s Pioneer Day Parade every year, as well as other special events.

Some of the automobiles that you will see in the museum include a 1901 one-cylinder Oldsmobile, 1930 16-cylinder Cadillac, 1937 Packard 115c, and a 1929 Durant sedan. The museum also displays interesting auto-related items such as antique gas station pumps, scale model cars, old license plates, and trophies from classic car shows.

The Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum is located on Wall Avenue in Ogden, and it is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Monday to Saturday. Admission to all Union Station museums is priced at $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for seniors, and $3.00 for children.
