We keep an annual membership to union station to bring our kids (8 & 12) by anytime we are in KC. We have only been on weekdays, I am not sure about crowd control on the weekends. You can spend a day or an hour. It is very interactive and will wear out the kids. I always recommend this to friends as a destination during cold or rainy days. I recently encouraged a co-worker to take her 1 year old and she said they had a blast in the toddler area, her daughter fell asleep on the way back to the car. We usually add a movie in Union Station, a trip through the train museum, and watch a few rounds of the toy trains to round out the day before leaving.
Side note: I often like the revolving exhibits in Union Station. For example, a couple years ago the Princess Diana exhibit came through. Science City was a great place for my husband to take the kids, while I leisurely walked through the exhibit and actually got to stop and read about the items on display. It was a rare treat!
