Why You Should Go...

Union Station in Kansas City, MO, is not only a central hub for transportation, but is a famous historical destination featuring shops, exhibits, dining, and more. Built in 1914, Union Station encompasses 850,000 square feet; at its peak during WWII, an estimated one million travelers passed through the Station. After renovation in the 1990s, the Station became the destination it is today.

There is so much to do, such as explore world-class touring exhibitions and enjoy non-stop, hands-on fun at Internationally Awarded Science City. Visit the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium featuring super clear views of the solar system, surround sound and stunning educational programming for every age. And enjoy a first-run or educational movie in our Extreme Screen Theatre, featuring the region’s largest screen or take in a live performance in our City Stage. In all, it’s no wonder Union Station and Science City are recognized as “Favorite Family-Friendly Attraction” and “Favorite Historic Attraction by VisitKC and “Attraction of the Year” by GKCAA.
