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.

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.
