Back to the OVERVIEW of Kansas City attractions...

Kansas City's Union Station is the second-largest working train station in the country, right after Grand Central Terminal in New York. This fully-restored, 1914 landmark is home to an interactive family science center and a railroad museum, as well as shops and restaurants. The Station also plays host to international traveling museum exhibits, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. A site on the National Register of Historical Places, the Station also houses a live theater stage, a 3-D movie theater, the region's largest planetarium and the city's main post office. KC Union Station is home to one of Kansas City's most unique water features, the Bloch Fountain. Its dancing jets showcase a synchronized water display every hour on the hour.
