The Train Still Stops at Union Station


ansas City’s Union Station is one of the most popular attractions in the city. Residents and visitors frequent this gorgeous structure throughout the year. There is always something exciting happening here. Just the magnificence of the building itself is something to behold. The central lobby has a jaw-dropping decorative ceiling rising almost 100 feet from the floor level. Fine restaurants and shops offer great service. Built in 1914, this old building was the main train station for the Midwest for decades in the 1900’s. It was closed and stood empty for several years. Then, after much rehab and restoration, Union Station opened its new doors to the delight of Kansas City residents. It now offers special attractions by the Smithsonian Institute, a planetarium, the ever-popular Science City, movie theaters and live theater productions. It doesn’t stop there! If you need to catch a train…the train still stops here! AMTRAK trains arrive and depart daily.
