Fodor's Review

Across Pershing Road from the Liberty Memorial is the jewel in Kansas City's attractions, Science City, a 55,000-square-foot science museum in the restored train station, was once the second largest train station in the country. The museum contains 50 hands-on learning environments, including a planetarium, "extreme" movie screen, and media lab. Built in 1914, the train station itself houses a vintage rail exhibit and a variety of restaurants, shops, and theaters.

Too Cool to be School!

Fabulous place to go to run, play and explore. We go every time we're in KC and our 7 year-old has as much fun as the 3 year-old does. Easy to navigate and to keep track of the kids...very open and very cool. The kids learn a lot and we all have fun.
