Amazing restoration. It is a spectacular historic structure. There was a model train exhibit that was pretty amazing.

there's a wide variety of activities for all ages. Seasonal attractions and decorations during the holidays. Some events are strictly entertainment, some are educational, some are historical.

What an incredible facility, I could wander and look in amazement for hours. The architecture is fabulous and there are pictures and stories from days gone by throughout the facility. Union Station has a number of little shops and places to eat as well. It was like stepping back to a time when life seemed so much simpler.

We went to the long running exhibit about Leonardo da Vinci in union station and really enjoyed it but saw a number of families who had younger children being restless and bord. While there were lots of cool models of his inventions, many of them hands in, as a grandmother of kids aged from two to twelve, I would never... More

The light inside Union Station is gorgeous in the afternoon, this was an excellent spot for photography. There are a few restaurants and activities, but nothing mind-blowing. It was a nice stop -- we walked over from the WWI Museum and Federal Reserve Bank -- but I wouldn't make it a destination.

Union Station is a great space that reminds you of the grand old days of train travel, and it seems that the space is now being used for exhibits of all sorts. We arrived late in the day, so we didn't have a chance to see the Science Center, but we enjoyed its gift shop, as well as the DaVinci... More

I visited Union Station twice in November. The first visit was to go to Pierpont's Restaurant. The second time was for the Royals World Series celebration. I can't ever enter Union Station without thinking about all the history here and hustle and bustle that surrounded it in the era of rails.

I can wander around Union Station for a couple of hours, mesmerized by the architecture and the history. Neat shops and restaurants, an Irish history museum, stuff for the kids, great New Year's Eve party, the city's biggest movie screen, not to mention the train station! The basement has lots of history about the station and the city on the... More
