Union Station, Kansas City: 15 reviews and 31 photos
This is a cavernous hall that used to be the main waiting station inside. At one time in WWII there were 1 million that came thought this station to various points. It has 850,000 square feet and used to also have 850 rooms to stay plus a waiting area to seat 10,000. Now the alternative feture is Science City; a presentation of odd science displays. Once you seen it that is all you need to not come back.
They still do have an Amtrak next door that you can connect to. There are a couple of shops that sell goodies, like chocolate, and souvenirs. Everything is closed after 5PM, so it really gets dark in there; like a sarcophogus since all is made of huge limestone blocks inside and outside.
