Holidays at Union StationThe greater Kansas City area is filled with ways to celebrate Christmas, both indoors and outside. One of the most unique and popular places to go every December is Union Station. As an old train station from 1914 that was renovated in the late 1990s into the museum it is today, Union Station not only houses science and history attractions, it also is a magical place for holiday fun.
