The station is beautiful. Also, there is so much to do there with or without kids that is affordable. A must do while in Kansas City.

This historic building celebrated its 100th year in 2014 and is beautifully maintained. The architecture is a visual delight with a lovely ceiling and historic chandeliers. Due to a busy schedule, we only spent 15 minutes walking around inside and were so glad we did. Harvey's restaurant had interesting seating and a good-looking menu, but we had other plans for...

I want to say this is the best historically exhibit ever. Seeing things such as tweezer that were 2063 years old and we still use today. This was well worth your time and money. I would definitely go back.

We went for the Pompeii exhibit and stayed to go to Science City. The kids had so much fun. There's so much to do for kids of all ages. And we are Science Center members in Stl so we got into the Science city portion free. Pompeii was really informative and everyone enjoyed it. The location is great and easily... More

I have been to Union Station many times both for exhibits and to do events and Catering. The Titanic exhibition was fantastic! There has been other exhibits that were outstanding. The Union Station itself is a work of art. It's definitely worth seeing. If you're going to ride the Amtrak, you'll get to be there anyhow. Also went to science... More

Walked over to union station via the Link. We were really just strolling to see what was around on our first night when we stumbled across this amazing architectural find. With its 95 foot ceilings, it stands in beauty. It has numerous attractions inside. The only downside is that most of them close at 5 or are closed on Mondays.... More

This has to be one of the best places! We moved here in 1979 from Elkhart, IL. AND our girls had many many friends take the train from Springfield,IL TO Kansas City. Loved the old train station BUT love it as much or better in 2016 Very good!

My friend Eric and I went to the Union Station primarily to see the Pompeii Exhibit, now showing at the Station. Besides being a beautifully renovated building with many interesting shops, many activities are planned there year around, not to mention Science City, IMAX, The Kansas City Store, and the Gottlieb Planetarium! Our visit to the Union Station was primarily... More
