Whether you are taking a class of 25, or your own family of 2, Union Station is a beautiful asset to Kansas City that was almost lost to time and neglect. The grand scale of the restored early 20th century architecture is awesome to see, but don't forget Science City for younger kids and the special exhibits (currently Pompeii the... More

We went here to see the special showing of Pompeii: The Exhibition. Terrific temporary show with some artifacts on display on their first time away from Italy. Well worth the couple of hours and always cool to go to Union Station!

We visited the Pompeii exhibit this trip to KC, and it was well worth the time. We also visited the Science City earlier. The whole facility is beautiful, with notes of the history in various places.

Our family, from age 9 to 74, visited the Pompeii exhibit the day after Thanksgiving. Everyone enjoyed it. In addition, the station looks beautiful decorated for Christmas, and the train display is always a hit with the kids.

A nice place to visit. You can also see the exhibitions that it usually offers, like Pompeii that was the last that I saw there, or have a coffee.

We traveled to Union Station right before Thanksgiving. Lights, Legos and train displays were festive. Make sure you travel upstairs to see interesting artifacts and history of the station. Nice views, also.

We came here for the Pompeii Exhibit. It was very interesting. First, the negative- Union Station was disorganized. We bought our tickets online and finding the Will Call window was ridiculous. We were told to go to three different places by three different employees before we found where we were supposed to be. There was not a lot of signage,... More

Union station is a one of a kind place! It's a beautiful building with amazing attractions! There's so many things to do here! Plenty of places to eat, a movie theater, Science City, traveling attractions and my kids favorite is the model train exhibit! Around Christmas time the place is beautifully decorated as well! Highly recommend visiting!
