Wow! What an amazing structure! Union Station is a gorgeous building that is drenched in history and charm. It is a place that you will not want to miss if you are a history buff or a lover of fine buildings.

I wouldn't make a special trip for this venue, but if you are at the WWI memorial, walk down the hill. Or if you are a the Hallmark Center, it is an easy walk. A good day of tourism in K.C. is the WWI memorial, Hallmark, Money museum, a little shopping with a lunch or dinner stop here. The science... More

Remembering that Union Station was where I first took a train ride at 3 months old, fun to visit. Restaurants are good and just a fun visit.

I was attending Kansas City for a railroad conference at the Westin Crown Center, which happens to be across the road from the Station. How fortunate was that! This superb edifice is one of the great Union Stations which have survived across the US, and is 100 years old this year. We were lucky enough to have a corporate function... More

King Tut exhibit was there but the building itself is a wonder. Through history the train depots have always been grand places for travelers. KC has renovated their depot into a museum complex right next to Crown Center. A must see, as it also gets you to Crown Plaza.

Several shops are inside. I saw Two restaurants but when we finished our trolley ride we discovered the one closed at 3pm & the other didn't start serving until 6pm. A Science Museum is there & a few shops. Great architecture & history.

The parking is the worst thing ever. Get there at 9:30a.m. or don't bother. $5 for 4 hours. There is a planetarium there which is a nice surprise, albeit small. We went for the King Tut exhibit, which was awesome, but the staff there couldn't have been less helpful... not at the planetarium and not at the exhibit. We did... More

The outside of the station did not prepare me for the beauty that I found when I stepped through the door. I really didn't expect much based on the outside of the building, but the interior was stunning! We were there at night and didn't go into any of the shops/exhibits, but did enjoy walking around and looking at the... More
