I have always wanted to go see this station and the architecture was magnificent. The restaurants in there left something to be desired but not to bad.

Union Station sat vacant for many years, like a lot of cities struggle with, but we were fortunate enough to have ours revitalized. Today it holds a very popular Science City exhibit for kids, as well as a multiple screen Imax theater. There are multiple restaurants on site, as well as shops. The station hosts multiple events throughout the year, as well as various traveling exhibits. It is connected to Crown Center shopping area, and the Sheraton Hotel via an overhead glass walkway. This location is still an active Amtrak hub.

Worth checking out if you are staying near by. Grab a bite or a cup of coffee and walk through the historic building.

Without a doubt if you are in Kansas City you should visit Union Station, a recent renovation has left this magnificent building looking much as it did when rail passengers crowded it huge floor space. There are displays of model railroads located in the back which are especially worth seeing during the Christmas season. Restaurants and shops are located on the main floor along with a highly rated Science exhibit for kids. I would recommend checking out the Union Station’s web site for further information on events and exhibits. The one drawback to Union Station is that it’s big inside 850,000 feet of partially used floor space gives the building an empty feeling. I would defiantly say check it out and decide for yourself.

If you have been in old train stations before, you will probably be quite impressed by this one. I have been in the Union Pacific Railroad Station in Omaha NE. and in Grand Central Terminal in NY. Both are very nice, but I think the Union Station in KC is better. They all share very interesting architecture and period furnishings. The Science City attraction really makes it a great destination for those with children of all ages.

We also visited during restaurant week which I would recommend. But be sure to make reservations! The prices are half or less of their normal, which can be quite high.
