After we paid for the tickets I thought it might just be a place for kids. However, it was a place to be a kid again :) Almost all the activities were a blast and we played for probably 5 hours straight.

I have lived in KC for 10 years and just recently visited Science City for the first time. I was really impressed. We have taken our young daughters to several hands on museums and this is one of the better places.

This building is beautiful inside and out, the outside grabs your attention but once inside you cant help but to keep starring at the ceilings definitely a true beauty.

Science City is located within Union Station and, within the Station, are several restaurants. You can easily walk out of SC to eat and come back in during the same visit.
