What a beautiful place, with lots going on… We just wandered around to look, and it is a spectacular space. It’s decorated for Christmas and it’s really beautiful. The model trains are something to see. We didn’t go to the science center or eat in the restaurant, but it was worth it (especially considering it doesn’t cost anything, except if... More

It's a great place to take your children for hands-on fun. Lots of educational exhibits that are very cool for not only the kids, but for Mom & Dad too.

I like old train stations in general so I wanted to see this one. WOW! It is surely one of the best restorations in the US. A large train station that has been repurposed to include shops, restaurants and museums. Went during the Christmas season and it was ablaze with decorations, musical groups, kids in line to see Santa and... More

Such a beautiful building! I am so thankful that this building was saved. I look to just look around and feel the history of the building. There is a new exhibit for the 100 year anniversary. It features tons of pictures of the station thru the years. Some very sad but it definitely shows the history of the station. Anyone... More

Union Station is a KC Must-See! Came with my husband, teenage son, and 11-year-old to look at the miniature train exhibit (FREE!) and enjoy the Christmas lights (FREE!) at the beginning of the Christmas season. We were NOT disappointed! Visit on most days of the week, and you can enjoy the IMAX screen films, the live stage, Science City, fine... More

We did the holiday-Christmas Vacation movie-$2.00 per person-it was packed. But a fun movie on a huge movie screen. Afterwards walked through Union Station-very beautiful. A fun night !!

Kansas City has done an AMAZING job of rehabilitating this gorgeous facility! Simply one of the most beautiful structures in the city....period. Go and have lunch at Harvey's Restaurant/Bar!
