Union Station boasts a Science City, the Amtrak terminal, and an IMAX. It is safely connected to the Crown Center shopping center, the Hallmark visitors center, and the Westin.

I visited this shortly after going to the science museum in St. Louis. As much as I loved the St. Louis' free admittance, I preferred the way Science City is more hands-on than lots of reading. Children aren't the only ones who prefer to learn by doing rather than reading. If I want to read about science, I'll get a book. Science City brings science alive for children and us adults who are still kids at heart.

Science City was a great surprise in Kansas City. It was very clean and well put together. It was very neat. I think it would be best for kids who are a little bit older than my 3 year old, but she still enjoyed all the sights and sounds and spaces that Science City had to offer. The staff was helpful with questions. The website said there was free parking but we could not find it. We REALLY loved that Science City was a part of the ASTC passport program which makes your membership with them even more useful. Overall we really enjoyed our trip there.

More like a children's museum than science museum, but fun for kids. Love the optical illusions and space training bits.

Location hurts Science City in many ways, but it is a great place for young kids to learn and have fun. It has good community volunteer support; particularly during Engineer Week, but when you consider its value to all age groups, it ranks as average when compared to some other centers I have visited.
