Science City, Kansas City

4.4
#4 of 16 in Childrens Museums in Missouri
Science City is a place of wonder, where kids and adults can find something new with each visit. Throw the don't touch mindset out the window. There are no tests and no wrong or right answers, just a chance to explore with freedom and pure imagination.

Its magic starts with its location. An architectural and historic marvel, Union Station provides a venue unlike any other science center in the nation. From the moment you pass under the clock tower to your first step inside the cityscape of Science City, the experience sets the stage for making memories.

The educators at Science City are equally passionate about taking that magic outside the science center's walls. Every year, its educators reach out to schools and organizations across the Kansas City metropolitan area with assembly programs, stage shows and science nights.

  • Science City is a must see in Kansas City. There are so many interesting and educational opportunities. My grandsons, ages 6 and 7,had a ball exploring all the different areas. We had the opportunity to visit the dinosaur exhibit which was amazing. They could have spent hours in the outside area playing in the equipment and learning about gravity and force. Highly recommend.
  • There aren't too many values like Union Station and Science City in KC. We've purchased the family season pass for a few years now and it's such a great value for many reasons. The Christmas season has so much to offer and it's a lot more fun NOT having to pay for every train ride and it's so beautiful down there. The Science City value is worth every penny and each time we go we discover something new. I'm over 40 and it's amazing to me as well.
