Union Station

With accolades, exhibits, interactive experiences and more, Union Station always astounds.


  • Internationally acclaimed Science City cultivates the inner Marie Curie and Isaac Newton in youngsters of all ages. Featuring more than 350 hands-on, interactive exhibits both indoors and out, Science City fills nearly 100,000 square feet of the Union Station campus. New this year is the opening of the biggest expansion since its debut in 1999—an early learning initiative featuring three new exhibitions specifically designed for children 0 to 6 years old.

  • Limited engagement: Marvel at world-class touring exhibitions, including the debut of Dinosaur Road Trip, which promises a one-of-a-kind adventure for guests of all ages. Starting July 3, visitors will buckle up for an epic, cross-country trip inspired by the historic Route 66. Along for the ride are 26 life-size animatronic dinosaurs, your tour guides on this coast-to-coast, walk-through adventure.

  • Whatever the season or occasion, Union Station is the place to celebrate. Bring the entire family to signature Science City events or experience the magic of the holidays with the thousands of lights, trees and garland that fill the Station each winter during the Holidays Come Alive festivities. Included are free family activities nearly every weekend. No matter the time of year, there’s always something new to see and do at Union Station—Kansas City's historic home and destination for the entire region.
