Christmas time this place really comes alive. It is decorated beautifully. My nephew really enjoyed the train display and seeing Santa.

What a magnificent piece of architecture. This is a special place of wonder in Kansas City. So glad they restored Union Station. Not something you will see everywhere.

Walked through with my wife just killing time. They have really got it fixed up nicely. We appreciated the history and museum. Lots of different things to do from shopping to dining, science city, museum, and 3-d bigscreen

We have visited two exhibits at the KC Union Station...both excellent and so well presented. Last year we visited the King Tut exhibit. This year we toured the Leonardo DaVinci exhibit. Amazing all the inventions from this remarkable man. Learned so much. Loved the hands on exhibits.

It is 45 min. in length, and directed by Canadian filmmaker Stephen Low, it features the Canadian Pacific Railway’s restored 4-6-4 H1b Hudson steam locomotive 2816.... More
