This beautiful old station is pretty quiet now. It’s worth the stop to see and we had an ice cream cone while there. There is also a model train display that is pretty cool.

There is a lot to see and do for all ages at Union Station - art exhibits, a science center for kids and some shopping and restaurants. Also it is a popular place for weddings.

Union Station is a well preserved relic of the glory days of railroad travel. It has been renovated - artfully and one can almost hear the old announcements as you walk through the halls. They have the model railroad museum at the end of the...More

No, no long long term parking. The only free parking is for the post office and that is short term. Your best bet is to get an Uber or have someone drop you off.

I am assuming the question is regarding the current exhibit at Union Station. Per Union Station, tickets to Pompeii exhibit are available through April 30th.
