My daughter and granddaughters, ages 4 and 7, recently visited from San Francisco. We had a couple of rainy days so decided to go to Union Station and Science City. We were absolutely amazed! There were so many things to see and do that we ended up becoming members so we could go back as often as we wanted. Believe me it takes more than one visit to experience all of the fun, interactive activities and educational opportunities available. None of us were bored with anything and we could participate as much as we wanted, it was a great time for the children and the adults. I'm not even sure that we still did see the entire place. I would highly recommend it as a must see, go and spend time in Kansas City!

This place was amazing and huge. We used our ASTC reciprocal pass while on a road trip and were truly wowed by this museum. We could have spent all day here. We stayed a fewhours and I still had to drag the kids out. Lovely layout, great interactive displays. The topographical interactive map was my favorite. The outdoor playground was awesome. You should visit if they will love it!! you are in the area with kids.

I should start off by saying that we did arrive later in the day. Unfortunately, a lot of the unique staff guided activities were already closed or were not open due to planning for a special event. We had just visited another science museum a few days prior and quite a few of the activities/displays were the same. Now they did have some things that my children enjoyed that were new for us. They really enjoyed the outdoor area with the zip line, and other outdoor activities. The actual design of the museum was unique and made it seem larger. We will go back if we visit Kansas City again, but will start earlier in the day to see the closed exhibits.

One of the best science centers that we have visited, and we have a membership that gives us access all over the country. This center is well supplied with cool stuff, and extremely well laid out. A must!

The hotel concierge suggested we visit Union Station, but failed to tell us about Science City. What a delightful surprise. The grandkids (21 mos, 5 & 6 yrs.) absolutely loved it! It was the perfect activity after riding for 4 hrs in the car. There were so many fun, interactive activities for the kids they couldn’t choose a favorite. Would definitely recommend visiting Science City.
