Create an itinerary including Union Station
Visit a science museum and catch a train, all in one building at the lovingly restored Union Station. The station was heavily used when it was built in 1914, but fell into disrepair after World Word II until it was closed in 1985. After almost 20 years of neglect, the station reopened in 1999, after significant renovation. Now the station is a cultural and transportation hub, featuring museums such as Science City, a 3-D movie theater, and a large planetarium. Union Station is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • My most favorite place of all in Kansas City!! Love everything about this place, so much stories touched my heart I cried on my first trip heartwarming feeling to see this historic stunning architecture been frozen in time. I’ve been visiting this place three times now and will come back for more. It’s a family-friendly adventure no doubt a truly magnificent place to spend with your families. Can’t wait for more special events to come especially during Xmas. There’s a link connecting this place to Sea life , Lego Land and Crown Center Plaza where you can find stores and various kinds of international cuisines.
  • We visited to see the Auschwitz exhibit. It was one of the best exhibits we’ve been to. The audio guide is top-notch and easy to use, guiding you through the exhibit. While the content is heavy, it is presented thoughtfully. The artifacts and experience were incredible. Highly recommend if you can get a ticket before the traveling exhibit leaves!
