Science City at Union Station is a family-friendly interactive science center that features traveling exhibitions, The Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium, City Extreme Screen theatre, and more than 120 hands-on displays. It is located inside Union Station at 30 West Pershing Road in Kansas City, Missouri.

It was the main feature in the bi-state renovation vote of 1997. It was part of a renovation plan for Union Station after being closed for a short period of time when Trizec, a Canadian redevelopment firm had failed to redevelop the station. It opened in November 1999.

  • This 3 level interactive hands on museum is 1 of the best I've been too & we've been to several in several different states. The have a carnival games section, optical illusion ares, dinosaur play area, water works area, trains interactive play & display, DNA exploration, painting, digging, outdoor playground & so so much more. You can easily spend all day here & kids & adults of all ages will enjoy themselves. Extremely affordable at $14.50 a person. Keep in mind you do have to pay for parking which can add up to $20 for allday unless you find street parking for free & walk a couple blocks to Union Station or take the street car over which is free. Highly recommend
  • Don’t be fooled by entrance activities- that’s not all it is! I couldn’t see past that hallway and thought I had paid $100 just for that. Oh no, there is SO MUCH more!! It is amazing! Such a fun science center with so many activities! It was extremely busy because of spring break, but they gave us wrist bands so we could come back after a late lunch and it was much better. Totally worth it! Go see the model trains at the end of union station as well.
