Lots to do and plenty of places to sit down and cool off while you decide what to do next! Good for families with small kids, although letting them scream repeatedly to hear it echo in this huge old building is probably NOT necessary.

Great place to visit. It's really pretty and their events are always good way to spend the day. Make sure to get a coffee shop at Parisi and spend some leisure time here!

A big space and cool to walk through, look up and go "wow!" because of the sheer size and gorgeous ceiling. But after that, get on with your day.

Took my grandson out to union station for the makers convention. The station also has many things that are for families and children, i.e..., science city, the train exhibition. The street car and crown center are in very close proximity for even more things to do.

This magnificent building is a gem of architecture and a fun shopping and dining spot. Wandering the halls you can feel the grandeur and imagine the people coursing through over the ages. Timeless beauty.

Union Station is now one of my favorite places in KC. Full of history and culture with modern flare. I was pleased to see you could literally stay there all day with your family.

There is always something going on at Union Station...the Science Center is great for kids and different displays and programs throughout the year. Coffee shops, upscale restaurant and cafe food available...you can even catch and Amtrak train there or the new street car. A covered walkway also connects to Crown Center with a number of restaurants, shops, the Hallmark Museum... More

We went there to have lunch at Harvey's and enjoyed looking at the architecture of the building. It is a thing of beauty from the past. There are a lot of things for younger children to do.

We visit Union station at least 1 to 3 times every visit to Kc. I must say this place is getting better and better each year . It's fun to just wander and enjoy the trains .
