Union Station

Union Station, a one-stop destination for family fun and learning: Science City, Dino Lab, trains, theater, planetarium and museum exhibits

about us

There's no other place in Kansas City quite like Union Station -- where connections to the past and present, education and entertainment are made. An architectural treasure with an illustrious history dating back to its gateway to the West days in 1914, the Station was restored to glory in 1999.

Today, the 850,000-square foot landmark is home to the interactive Science City, traveling exhibits, restaurants, shops, special events and more. Union Station's Theater District features live performances on the H&R Block City Stage and state-of-the-art 3D movie projection on the giant Extreme Screen.

Meet family and friends under the famous Grand Hall clock for a Union Station experience that's equally fun and enriching.
