Take Train To Union Station – Kansas City. Its One Of World’s Most Beautiful
We have a nice train station in Sedalia, on Pacific Street and North Osage Avenue. Following the renovation, the 1886 depot serves as a multimodal transportation center. The Missouri Amtrak River Runner will take you from St Louis to Kansas City. If you do need to go to Kansas City, perhaps you should take the train instead of driving. You will see one of the World's Most Beautiful train station.
Architectural Digest has just published an article and it has named 37 train station from all of the world that it deems the Most Beautiful. Union Station Kansas City is on the list. The link to that article is HERE. The 37 train station list covers all corners of the world including New York City, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Paris and more.
The station was created by architect Jarvis Hunt, and it opened in 1914. It is in the heart of downtown Kansas City. It cost $6 million to build the station, which was part of a $50 million investment that included track additions, towers and bridges. It is often used for the Kansas City skyline and it certainly is eye-catching.
Union Station is home to several traveling and long-term interactive exhibits, restaurants and retail stores. There is a museum inside that will give you more of it's history.
