Train station has been restored but inside the are now modern stores, theatres, etc. Old benches are gone. Basically a skeleton of its former self.

I have been to special events, the cinema and the holiday events. There is still more to explore but it has always been a pleasant experience and I have always learned something or found a "take away" from the moment. I would definitely recommend checking their website for event schedules as this may impact to cost and availability of parking... More

Wow, what an awesome building. Not much going on inside. One restaurant (high end) was open and another closed. Very beautiful outside and in. Union Station does hold events and would be an excellent venue. We walked through US headed toward restaurants over the train tracks. In route we were led through an electric train museum that was definitely worth... More

We love coming to Union Station - there's always something you can find there that's interesting. We also like to catch a movie on their Extreme Screen for $5 on weekends at noon - best value ever! Also, Maker's Fair is always fun to attend there. Not to mention the awesome architecture!

Any day of the year this Union Station is quite the place to spend a few hours. The Science Museum there is most interesting. The restaurants are very nice, and there is usually a special exhibit of some kind. The building itself is most unique and so well restored. The area is a great one for other attractions, such as...

Union Station is a beautifully restored (massive) rail station; built in the heyday of train travel and where thousands of passengers originated, or returned from, trips, changed trains or stopped while on their way to other cities and towns across the country. Today it still serves as an Amtrack Station, but plays an even more Important role in the Kansas... More

I was born and raised in KC and had the privilege of traveling from this station back in the late 50's and early 60's. The building has be preserved and is full of shops and historic mentions. I love going down at Christmas time because there are many presentations by children during the season. Very family orientated, grab a snack... More

While trying to walk from the convention center to the Country Club Plaza...we crossed a bridge that took us into the Union Station's model train & Lego village & Thomas the train village.. & more. We wandered through, feeling like guilty trespassers that stumbled into a back door of a beautiful fantasy land filled with historical significance. Eventually we were... More
