About Union Station
Kansas City’s Favorite Landmark

On October 30, 2014, Union Station Kansas City will celebrate its 100th Anniversary. This majestic landmark opened and was dedicated on October 30, 1914. During its opening ceremony, Union Station was heralded as one of the most beautiful train stations in the country and that tradition continues today. Union Station is still considered one of the top 23 train stations in the country. read more

Union Station became the region's transportation hub for decades, serving as the gateway to the West for many people traveling through and moving to other parts of the country. It also was the station where the greatest number of soldiers traveled through on their way to or way home from World Wars I & II. Union Station has been Kansas City’s favorite landmark for decades. During the 1960s and 1970s when train traveled declined and the Station fell into disrepair, citizens from across the region came together to save and restore this historic monument. In 1996, a historic short-term bi-state tax, along with federal dollars and private donations, raised the funds to fully restore the station to its original beauty. Union Station re-opened on November 10, 1999.

Today, Union Station is a thriving civic center for Kansas City, featuring many special attractions and as the host site for big community events, festivals, business and education forums. It also is one of the favorite destinations for visitors and residents.
