My grandchildren and daughter and I went to the planetarium. They thought it was awesome. It really wasn't that expensive to go to either. Convenient to Crown Center so activities can be done at both places.

My wife and I recently arrived in Kansas City on the train, and were impressed with Union Station. Nice historical look, but also with vibrant activities and nice restaurants at the site. And very good location, right in downtown. An asset to KC.

We went to the Art of the Brick display. Out of this world. We had a lavender mocha at Pacshis which was delicious.

Union Station has always been a favorite place of mine. I was thankfully, able to take a train from the station in 1979 or 1980, and then it sadly closed up for many years. It looked lonely and desperate. Years later there was finally something...More

Union Station was a lot of fun to visit this past weekend. The building itself is very beautiful and I can see why a fancy dining event was being planned in back when we visited. You can't help but walk around staring at everything. When...More

I am assuming the question is regarding the current exhibit at Union Station. Per Union Station, tickets to Pompeii exhibit are available through April 30th.

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.
