Make a real and lasting difference! Union Station is an architectural treasure, but it has always been the people who have given this historic landmark a heart. Be one of those people.

Join the volunteers at Union Station and help the Station continue to be the place where Kansas City connects. Whether greeting guests inside Science City, assisting our staff in caring for Nature Center animals, answering questions at the Information Booth or working behind the scenes, Union Station volunteers make a big difference.

We have several volunteer positions available. You can simply suggest an area that fits your expertise or interests. Together, we will find the perfect opportunity for you. You can also give us a hand with special events, exhibits and fundraising.

The Special Benefits

We appreciate all our volunteers do and can't possibly thank them enough. But we do try to show our appreciation. Give us a little of your time – just a 32-hour a year commitment – and we'll give you all this and more:

  • Union Station Membership
  • Discounts in Station shops and restaurants
  • FREE previews to upcoming exhibits and shows
  • Participation in our special recognition events
