Union Station Membership is well worth the money

The kids love SC (3yr and 5 yrs) The membership makes the value even better, not only can you get into SC for free, you get discounts at the restaurants at union station

In Warrensburrg Mo for the weekend to see my Airman Grandson. We decided on a side trip to KC on Sunday, and ended up here. 5 adults and 1 five year old. A bit pricey, no discounts for military, seniors, only BOA card holders. Well worth the entrance fee. Honestly, I think the adults had more fun than the child,... More

As a non-railway buff, I was only expected to pop in for 5 minutes. But having wandered around, visited a few gift shops and stayed for food, we must have been here for close to 2 hours. A beautiful building, with lots of history. Right at the centre of the US's rail network. The gateway to the West. Some nice... More

This was a great time for my family. My 4 yr old loved it and so did the whole family. We spent the whole day there and loved every min of it.

Our family loved visiting this place - all our 3 kids: aged 19, 18 and 9. Even my hubby and I had a great time! We spent 3 hours here — so many exhibits to see. One of our favorites was Mister E's hotel. That was pretty cool! If we lived in this area, I would consider a membership because... More

Really liked museum. Kept 5 year old involved and entertained. My only complaint was that the bathrooms were disgusting. Somebody needs to clean them more than just the end of the day. When there is toilet paper with menstrual blood on the floor, that's just gross. Let alone trying to explain that to a 5 year old

This is a nice place to visit. The gift shop is pretty amazing. Kids will love it. I took my niece and she had such a smile on her face the entire time.

We did this on the last day of our KC weekend. We arrived around 10 am on Sunday morning. There was a line snaking through the gift shop to get in. Once we got close enough, after we herded our kids away from all the cool gadgets and trinkets toward the actual museum entrance, I noticed that we had to... More
