Union Station in Kansas City

While we were out looking at the fountains on Saturday we stopped by Union Station. It has been remodeled for millions of dollars not to long ago. It now has Science City in the basement part that draws school kids and adults alike. There were at least three weddings going on while we were there.
Union Station is always having some new exhibit or other. The architecture is just beautiful! I have shared some picture of what it looks like in side. click on pictures to enlarge

The front door!!

The ceiling












Karen said we should have lunch at the Harvey Restaurant which is inside Union Station. This restaurant was made into a movie in 1947 with Judy Garland "The Harvey Girls "





Kelly






Looking over the menu at the Harvey Restaurant The food was delicious! No they didn't take out the calories.






Nancy at the Harvey Restaurant. She had a great time.








Some of the beautiful architecture at Union Station









The Big Clock where people met one another!










One of the trains that used to run from Union Station











The tracks for the trains. Years ago there were many more tracks when trains were the main transportation for everyone.












Nancy and I waited for Karen and Kelly in front of the exit while they toured down stairs

When I first saw your title, I thought you were talking about Alice Krause and Union Station. Looks like a fun outing. We often went to the station house in Pittsburgh when we lived there. They had made a mall out of it with Resturants and some shops.
Hope you're feeling well,

Looks like a fun place to visit. I can't imagine getting married there, though.
