I recently attended my grandson's birthday party held in a room set aside for such an event at the Science City at Union Station in Kansas City, MO. This particular party had a dinosaur theme to it so it was appropriate that it was located next to the dinosaur exhibits. Included in the reservation was a behind the scenes look... More

Science city is fantastic, engaging and hands-on....so much activity and learning and FUN! If you live in the area, buy a membership because it's the best deal in the city and you will still find new things to do even after six visits. Stroller friendly, easy-access bathrooms and exhibits are fun for toddlers up to middle school. For lunch, we... More

A sign asked that tickets be purchased at guest services, but there was no one at guest services to sell tickets,

Spookfest was a nice promotion at a city standard. Staff were pleasant. Creepy crayons and other projects were cool. The ending time was too late for us, especially since we had to get dinner and drive 45 minutes home afterwards. Family oriented event for families to spend time together before madnes of Halloween.

I bring my 18 month boy here frequently and I cannot think of any better attraction for kids in all of the Kansas City area. It's great for kids probably up to 10 years. Of course, after few visits, I became a member.

The extreme bugs exhibit was fun. Our son ran from bug to bug saying read this, read this! I didn't really see that much amazing animation but it was enough to satisfy a 5 year old! The price was ok. There was an exhibit attendant that allowed our son to "feed" the silkworms. Way cool.

I went with some friends and this place is fun, even if it is geared more towards kids. If you have a Bank of America card, you get in for free.

We have tickets that are good for a full year at our local children's museum as well as many museums across the country, therefore, no fee to get in. Clean, bright interesting and fun. 3rd visit this year and haven't tired of this amazing museum. Our three year granddaughter loves it and had so much fun.

Union Station itself is pretty neat to visit architecturally, but if you have kids take them to Science City for a while. My kids (8 and 12) wanted to stay longer than I would let them and entertained themselves in just about every activity/exhibit except the tot lot. About the same price as a movie but much more educational fun.... More

We spent probably 4-5 hours at Science City and the kids were entertained the entire time. We surely would have stayed longer had we not run into closing time. We have two boys ages 7 and 5 and there were plenty of activities to keep them both entertained for hours. Tip: shop around for deals. We had a buy one... More
