I feel so lucky to have a place like this in my city. My husband and I love to go here for the endless stream of activities they seem to be holding as well as the excellent brunch at Harvey's. Be sure to take the elevator up to the 2nd floor for a great view. Oh, and the model train... More

Union Station is a great Kansas City landmark with easy parking. Science City is located inside the station and there is usually a national travelling exhibit at all times. There is a live theater featuring on-going children's play adjacent to a movie theater as well. The walk-way between Union Station and Crown Center makes it easy to park and walk... More

This place is nostalgia, history and fantastic workmanship!!! They have rebuilt this place back to its original stature, and to see the quality they have restored this to its 1 of a kind. There are a lot of meet things to see and great places to eat also. A little difficult to get to

We were passing through Kansas City and Drew from Marriott Branson recommended us seeing this on our way home. It truly is worth stopping . This station is in such nice condition, clean and a really nice feel. Everyone was friendly, Bill S was so helpful at the information center. The ceiling is so high and architecture here and around... More

Worth the stop to see such a grand part of our country's history. Our family of boys (16, 13, 11) enjoyed looking around and reading the displays. If you have younger kids, the added bonus of the visit it the science center/museum located within the station!

This building has been brought back to its glory days. There is a lot of history information on the building and it is very interesting. You have to plan on spending at least 4 hrs to read all the history and tour the building.
