“Good place to explore”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Lost of fantastic going's-on at Union Station shops to visit, museums to explore, concerts, etc. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is the parking can be difficult and confusing.

“Just stopped in”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I will preface this review with the fact we didn't see any of Science city or the rest while visiting Union Station as we headed off to the WWI Memorial across the street.

A very beautiful old station and, if you enter via the street side glass walkway, you can see a number of old photographs showing the construction of the station. It was a very beautiful old building and nice to just wander through. A few restaurants are located there as well as a post office if you need stamps. Connected near by is a science museum, which we did not visit, but it is a nice location to cool off and enjoy some food. It also is quite close to the WWI Memorial/Museum which is a great thing to visit.

“Science City”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Science City at Union Station is a great attraction and moderately priced. Highly recommended, especially with kids under 15.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Stopped in here, while waiting for the Toy and Miniature museum to open. Beautiful old building. We went Sunday morning, so not a lot of people. Really enjoyed the model train area, and the old bridge outside. But the highlight maybe the way you pay for parking (has to be seen to be believed). Also some of the classiest public washrooms ever.

“KC Union Station Saved and Being Used”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

In 1970 I passed through this Union Station traveling on train from LA to St. Louis. Glad to see this marvelous building saved, well maintained and utilized. You can have lunch and dinner here or just coffee or tea and enjoy the elegant décor.
