Reminiscence of days gone by. There are restaurants and a coffee shop, Amtrack, restrooms, planetarium, science center, IMEX theater and exhibits. It is a great place to park to catch the free city transportation to City/River Market.

This place offers several options for special events. Plus a couple of very good restaurants. KC Actors Theatre perform downstairs regularly - talented performances and good variety of types of plays. Only drawback is the temperature in the Theatre!! - always chilly.

So I've gone to Union Station in KC a number of times, but am always amazed at how grand and well kept it is. Definitely worth checking out for the views and history of the place.

Yes, free parking is in BACK of the Union Station across the tracks. I think Pierpont's is in the same block as Grunauer Restaurant.
