Such a beautiful building with absolutely nothing in it. We were there for an Escape Room and were there at 7:00 pm on a Saturday and there was literally nothing open. There were beautiful tables set with white cloth table linens, and silverware. But the...More

I am so glad this building was fully restored, repurposed and the history was documented within! Why don't we make buildings to look like this anymore, such detail and craftsmanship! Take a few hours and just explore or go to the planetarium or one of...More

This is such a great train station. With elegant architecture, great decorations during the winter holiday season (I travel from here many times a year), a wonderful gift shop, model train displays, historic looking waiting spaces, and cute restaurants it is awesome. I’m glad to...More

Enjoyed our trip to see the Art of the Brick on its last day. Facility is always nice, parking not bad, staff helpful. Was disappointed that the restaurant wasn't open. We went on the Memorial Day holiday, but would have expected things to be open...More

The property did not live up to the hype for the building. Just an old train station with some shops. If it rains a great place to hide from the weather but I wouldn't make it a destination stop.

Lots to do inside for kids, science city was nice plus lots of model trains. Beautiful architecture! The cost of parking was a little steep, but worth it

We have visited Union Station for plays, Science City, performing in the Nutcracker, sewing it all lit up for Christmas, trains, and much more. We love it and so do my children. It is a staple for families living in the area. I also love...More

I just love these type of places. Storical buildings that have been repurposed and that are still getting used for the original purpose as a railroad station. Electrical vehicle charging available in the garage, inexpensive parking out front it's also how you get to science...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.

I am assuming the question is regarding the current exhibit at Union Station. Per Union Station, tickets to Pompeii exhibit are available through April 30th.
