I used this train station as a train station! It worked like it was supposed to. It also had some amazing atmosphere. It's one of the most beautiful train stations I've been in, although I haven't been in that many. Parking was easy and ample. It cost $10 per day to park in the multi-level garage and there was plenty... More

I remember visiting this marvelous building when crowded with passengers awaiting/departing trains. I traveled to Chicago recently from the active train station. It was simply historic for me. The pictures of the train station in its heyday are worth looking at. I've also been to some special events (chocolate) at the train station. I've also eaten at three of the... More

We live close to Kansas City and go to Union Station at least twice a year. Union Station has a lot of history and KC did a magnificent job preserving it. There is so much to do including the ever changing exhibits, Science City, restaurants, and the theatre. The attractions are not cheap that's for sure but it's always a... More

This is a neat attraction to see. Walking in feels like a different world from where we live and it was great. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes, especially if you park in the parking garage. There are reserved spots in the front of the building (those that are using the Postal Service) and then the rest of the spots... More

This was a structure to behold when it was built. It held a special place in the heart of nearly every local citizen who remembered having spent time inside the halls. We we watched it crumble over the decades beyond it's glory days. It was very near it's demise when local citizens agreed to a bi-state tax to restore it.... More

If you appreciate architecture and craftsmanship of years gone by you will like this building. There are theaters inside, restaurants, and a model train display. Of course you can catch Amtrack trains also!

Amazing huge halls with lots of historical displays. Very reminiscent of Grand Central in New York City. Several great restaurants but the fill up so make reservations early. Well worth the visit.

This venue was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The lights and tree, my girls (10, 8 and 4) loved it. We had never been before and decided to check out the Extreme Bugs exhibit. We WILL be coming back to see science city!

There were a number of shops, but the model train layout was worth the trip for my 8 y/o and I. I also liked the history of the building.

I went here expecting to see something about the history, and early days of this grand building, but found almost nothing. The inside still looks amazing, but has been converted for other uses.
