Not interesting enough for a local, return visit. It's a checkmark kind of place.

“Beautiful Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Union Station is a beautiful old building with lots of incredible architecture. "Sprint Plaza" (which I guess is that large open area where we were at) worked out well for the Ron Paul rally we attended on the 20th.

Thousands of people were there, and fortunately, Union Station offers plenty of parking. In addition, there were actually people standing out there advising us where to park, which was helpful for someone not familiar with the area.

“A step back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We loved this piece of history. A walk through the station gives a glimpse of history. The beauty is amazing. The union station connects to The Westin hotel. This helps for walking purposes especially with small childern.

“Good for an afternoon of shopping.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Union station is pretty nice to walk around and shop. It's especially pretty at Christmas. There are various food choices so I don't think that you will get bored...or hungry! The only stores that were a little strange to me were the two stores, one for cats and one for dogs...a little weird...but quirky and kinda fun to browse around. Since the weather outside was bad the day I was there, it was nice to park indoors and then shop indoors. I had pleanty of options. Probably wouldn't entertain me more than an afternoon.

“stunning beauty and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

kansas city's union station has been refurbished and changed into an exciting railroad museum with a childrens science museum and a theater and restaurants thrown in to boot. its indoor access to many crown center hotels and the crown center complex make it a fun place to visit. and to stand in awe of the high ceilings and train station history and archetecture is something that you will not want to miss. And they have a permanent model railroad exhibit that is fun for all ages.
