I have wanted to see this museum for a long time and it did not disappoint. Very well done and great artifacts from the Negro Leagues. I loved the statues of the players in bronze at the end of the tour.

a great place to view both inside and out. Interesting display of how the train station was built. Locals told us the basement was haunted..with dueling player pianos in the main lobby..it sounded a bit scary...fun for all.

Unless you are with kids or going here to eat it's a quick stop to see interior architecture and there are better uses of your time.

An amazing place, it looks like a palace instead of a station. It worth for tourists to have a bust. However, it's a pity that there was a wedding there, we can not see the whole station.

Lovely architecture inside and out - albeit under scaffolding at the moment. I particularly liked the cabinets displaying the history of the Fred Harvey Company. These were the days of romantic train travel, with fabulous dining halls and porters to carry your luggage. A lovely place to visit in KCMO.

We visited union station and the science center with our daughter's family and our two teenage grandchildren. We spent hours of pure pleasure and learning. It was difficult to leave this wonderful place.

Science City is a terrific place to take kids! My elementary students all loved it! Great location with lots of other activities and places to eat nearby.

From the history of the station to the gorgeous architecture, spending 20 minutes or 2 hours in here is time well spent.

Be sure to go to the third floor. It's not really indicated on the main floor. The third floor shows the renovation and the history. Nice display
