Union Station is Kansas City's premier entertainment destination for family and cultural activities.

Discover the scientist inside you at Science City with more than 50 hands-on science activities. Science City also showcases Dino Lab, the result of a partnership between Union Station and the University of Kansas. You can watch a scientist prepping real dinosaurs for display in this unique laboratory, the largest of its kind in the US.

Then climb aboard Union Station's permanent local history exhibit, The KC Rail Experience. The KC Rail tells the story of how railroads shaped a city, a region and a nation. Visitors will see historic rail cars and artifacts -- tickets, bells, whistles and signs -- and hear stories from ghosts of Kansas City's railroading past.

Experience a massive movie in the Vic & Helen Regnier Extreme ScreenTheater, the region's only 3D projection system with a screen five stories tall. Journey through space and discover the wonders of the universe inside the Gottlieb Planetarium. At the H&R Block City Stage, guests can enjoy live shows from the Station's two resident professional theater companies -- Theatre for Young America and Kansas City Actors Theatre -- or from one of the many visiting companies who perform in this state-of-the-art, 200-seat performance venue.

Union Station also offers visitors fine restaurants, unique shops, world-class field trips, birthday parties, corporate outings and much more. And you can still catch the train here via Amtrak (http://amtrak.com).

The building itself is beautiful with ornate ceilings inside. Although we just stopped in for a quick visit, there was a lot to do inside--a planetarium, museum-style exhibit, kids area, a restaurant, some shops, etc. It's worth checking out.
