    There is so much to do. Will keep everyone busy. There is plenty for the kids and adults to do and there are plenty of sitting down places for us older ones too.  more »

    We visited Science City when hosting family in town and it was a great choice for every person in our party. We had five children with us ranging in age from 5 to 16 and there really was something for...  more »

    We found the Kansas City Science Center while we were exploring the Union Train Station. What a pleasant surprise. There are more hands on exhibits for everyone to enjoy. No matter what your age. But ...  more »

    I am a teacher and a mother of two. I love Science City! It is great for kids about 2 and up. I love all of the wonderful hands on learning experiences for kids. There are also rooms that seem to change each time we visit. My three year old loves it and I have been with older kids who have loved it just as much. I am so glad I asked for the membership as a family Christmas present instead of oodles of toys.

    I'm from out-of-town and didn't know this was in Union Station. And signage did nothing to help. The parking garage is mostly reserved for the USPS. nd I didn't like having to walk through the gift shop to enter. I certainly we finally got into the place it was awesome! My 9 yo son had a blast (so did I). There is a great variety of activities and displays and most are interactive. I impressed with the amount of hands-on opportunities. Have fun!

    Science City is a GREAT time for kids... and I play on half of the stuff myself! The season pass is a must... After just two visits it pays for itself. Science City is just about the perfect size; every time we go there, they have more than we can do in a day. The kids do everything they can handle in one day and then leave remembering that there were at least a few more things they wanted to do. Tons of interactive things, not just stuff to look at.

    The kids had a great time. We live about 3 hours away. They think it's well worth the car ride and want to go back!

    Lots of great interactive displays covering many different branches of science. Our little one is a bit young for the educational piece, but thoroughly enjoys the sensory part of yelling into echo chambers, making music, and building with blocks.
