We really wanted to see Union Terminal, which is under construction. Alas, even so we were led to believe we could see some part of the Terminal. In fact, we could not. Parking is $6. There is a shuttle to the Center.

Come here often and it's always a great time! The exhibits are always interesting and my boys end up learning something new each time. Get a membership! Discounts and free Children's Museum!

This new complex is under construction. The parts that are open are very good. Most of the staff are quite helpful and friendly, but one overly efficient museum employee, Meghan, decided to scold us for entering the exhibit 2 minutes after our ticketed time. Seriously,...More

The most expensive museum on four continents but worth every cent. My wife who knows nothing about science fiction but all about materials, sewing and style loved the display of awesome and famous costumes.

WE just went for the Viking exhibit and there is not much else to see right now. I always try to use AAA when I can as it often seems to offer the best discount.
