You can feel the history of times gone by the last 100 years. The station is so well preserved. I wish we could go back in time and see the hum of how busy it used to be!

this area is awesome, I took my kids in to see how we have evolved from how the iron horses took over and now they are on the verge of being faded out.

So nice to see the place active and thriving. We enjoyed the visit and walking around and just looking at the art show the was going on during our visit. We tried to go for a city bus tour but you better be booking those a day in advance, still enjoyed our visit and glad we stopped.

Amazing to see how large this building is. I can only imagine what it was like when it was full of people traveling. The craftsmanship is something to admire.

We just stopped into the station to check things out and discovered a free train museum. We stopped in and my young son really enjoyed himself. There was a lot to do at the station, but we didn't have a lot of time to check everything out. I want to go back to discover more!!

Gorgeous historical building and Harvey's Cafe was a good spot for lunch. An interesting collection of local art was on display when we were there also. Kids will enjoy the science museum.

We visited the King Tut exhibit at Union station. Not only is the Station itself worth the visit, but the Tut exhibit was well worth the money. It's wonderful to see what they have done to preserve the Union Station. I actually remember taking a train out of there with my grandmother . The building is awesome!

I remember being in Union Station as a child with my mother and grandmother. My grandfather was an engineer for the Santa Fe railroad company. We always ate at Harvey's and The Forum Cafeteria in downtown. I love looking at all the old photos in the hallways, but I miss sitting in the big waiting room (they removed the benches).... More

The King Tut Exhibit was fun and informative. Union Station is fabulous. The walkway to Crown Center was very convenient and we enjoyed accessing it that way.
