Neat place to visit/ Allow yourself time to see it.

Fun place to visit and see. Kids had a lot of fun here. Unfortunately we did not have a lot of time to spend here or it could have been better. Need to plan for a couple of hours... read more

If you have an hour to kill downtown, it is worth going to the train station to see what 1920s and 30s architecture looks like. There is acute train Museum for kids where they can see miniature railroads in action. We ate breakfast at Harvey's. It was okay. I would not go out of my way to visit this place... More

not a whole lot to do unless we were misinformed. Beautiful architecture and great history but that is about it. I swer I remember as a kid that we had so much fun here but not much anymore.

The station was nice and clean and I felt safe. There are some stations that I would be leary about. There were plenty of place to each and grab a snack while waiting for the train. The vending machine actually take credit cards now so welcome to technology.

This station has so much history. The model train exhibit was the best part--very impressive--Sheldon Cooper would be in heaven. Walk upstairs behind the post office to see and read about the station and the renovation and preservation efforts. You can walk out back and over a bridge to many restaurants including Jack Stack.

Good place for adults and children: restaurants, shops, planetarium, Science City, theater, concerts, and a place to meet friends and/or tour groups.

A must see for NFL fans, especially KC Chiefs fans. Nice job of presenting a quick history of the NFL. The focus seemed to be on the Chiefs for obvious reason, but I think there was something there for all fans. The interactive exhibits was great. We were only there for 90 minutes. I could have easily spent twice as... More

Great place for history, events, and kids. I recommend getting the membership. Discounts to just about everything they offer and free science city. Great place to watch a movie. The Planetarium is also free with membership and fun for the whole family.

Worth seeing. Most interesting feature is the Kansas City Massacre tribute/landmark. If you're there, go across the street to the National World War I Memorial and Museum (only WWI museum in the world).
