This is definitely the way to go. We did not use this transportation, but definitely will the next visit to KC. You can travel from Union Station ST Louis cheaper then gas

I thought there would be more shopping in here- there is the Science City but we didn’t go in. There is an awesome walkway from Union Station to Crown Center... it was nice to walk without having to worry about the traffic & weather.

Have gone here at times just to walk around and people watch. Always something fun at the museum or special exhibit. Great restaurants to try right there inside the station. Movies on the big screen. Easy to get to and parking at a decent price....More

This is a local historical spot. The Union City massacre .You can see bullet holes in the walls and read about infamous railways and massacre history. There are multiple attractions inside Union Station. Great coffee shop and all things Kansas City store. Love the planetarium.

Both of my kids loved this place. We have a 3 and 11 year old and the science museum there was great for both of them.

We rode the public transportation to Union Statin and arrived around 7:30. Beautiful decor and architecture. Everything seems to close around 4 or 5, so go early. Some shops and food options inside. Neat displays you could walk around and look at.

I’m not sure if there’s free parking or not. We parked in the parking garage and paid $10 but it was good for all day! Didn’t have to worry about the time on parking meters and it was a secure location.
