As a piece of architecture, this place is amazing and fully restored. It is also HUGE. So much to do and a lot of walking thus plan accordingly. Exhibits vary. We went during the makers faire which was neat. Go check this place out. There...More

Beautifully maintained train station from bygone days. If you visit during Summer, 2019, be sure to go out back to experience the marvelous kinetic artwork called "Reflecting Motion." Do NOT miss this stunning, free exhibit.

The building itself is worth a walk through and look around. There are very few examples in the Midwest of this 100 year old plus building in this excellent shape of condition.

Had a wonderful time exploring the Stonehenge Exhibit. Highly recommend going to see it if you are in the area and have a couple of hours to spare.

We walked from the other side of railroad track through that over 200 old bridge to union station. I love most about this build not only the nice architecture but it also has a small railroad model.

Great views and fun part of the city. Easy to park and easy access to downtown. Tunnels to Westin are fun and worth the walk of you’re staying there. The bar with the ladder to the top shelf booze is old school and really fun.

Any visit to K.C. should include dropping in old Union Station (it is a short walk from the WWI museum). The main hall is stunning with a huge, soaring ceiling and there are many displays detailing the history of the station and city. There are...More

There are some really good restaurants there but my experience was centered around train travel. Inside they manage and organize passengers well. The walkway to the train is really poor. 1 elevator or a long trek down stairs with luggage - difficult. I got there...More

Beautiful place, great history. The Harvey display and photos are really great. Lovely place to walk around and catch the streetcar to P&L. So charming - love the buiding. Fun to imagine all the servicemen and women leaving and coming home on the trains. Went...More

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.
