The Utah Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is located in Ogden, Utah at the Union Station, 2501 Wall Avenue. Free Admission during Art Strolls.
The mission of the Utah Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is to honor the cowboy, along with those men and women whose lives exemplify the independence, resilience and creativeness of the people who settled Utah and those who continue to champion the Western way of life. The museum honors artists, champions, competitive performers, entertainers, musicians, ranchers, writers and those persons past and present, who have promoted the western life style.
It is the museum’s goal to collect artifacts that paint a historical picture of the diversity related to the establishment and development of our Western ethic, including those accessories that are peculiar to the American Cowboy.
Eventually, the museum will include a research center that will contain photographs and histories, oral and written, documenting Utah’s Western culture and its people. A library of books and materials detailing the various facets of western settlement will also be available to researchers and the public.
