Went there for the first time today. Went through the Science Museum and really enjoyed all the things for families. Lots of little places within the Station. They have a movie Theater, a Science area, and a great playground of a variety of things for children. They also have a place called the Escape Room that my Grandson tells me... More

We really enjoyed the interesting presentation of Pompeii artifacts and facts. It seemed the ticket taker took an abnormal amount of time to collect ticket money and send people in....don't know if it was because she had two cell phones out or whether I just don't understand what goes into taking tickets. Anyway, it was worth the wait to enter.

This was a very cool place. There were lots of old pictures that my boys enjoyed looking at. Everybody there was so kind.

My wife and I went to the Pompeii exhibit today. It was neat and took about 90 minutes to get a good look. Other than the exhibit area there are a few restaurants a planetarium and a science center. I'll go again if family or friends are in town.

I wasn't really sure what to expect, especially after seeing Grand Central Station in NY just last year. But Union Station was pretty interesting, a little smaller than Grand Central Station, and with some enjoyable things for younger kids (and us youthful adults) to enjoy. There's a experiential science museum, a historical museum, a grand theatre, an active railroad system,... More

Beautiful interiors are like nothing else, the history is alive here. Even if your not doing an activity or having a meal stop by and check it out. Plenty of parking in front and back. Stop by and see the miniature trains room. There is a gift, coffe and chocolate shop too. Walk out back on the bridge and watch... More

I was hoping for more to do in this location without having to pay. There were some great exhibits from what I saw, but the only free activity was a model train area. That was quite interesting and very well done. There were a couple places where you could buy souvenirs or get something to eat.

Loved visiting here every time we come to Kansas City. There are always new exhibitions and attractions. Go on their website to check out what is new. Very pretty place to get some photos.

We loved the exhibition. It was very well done. Loved Union Station and the Train Exhibit. Didn't eat there, but would at another time!
