Science City- Union Station Reviews & Ratings

  • Pleaee bring your children here, the experience is top notch. Aside from great displays, informative explanations of every "station", and every button, lever, handle, etc. always working - the place is always sparkling clean. Every adult tries to keep up with the children but they themselves get distracted enjoying the hands-on fun. One suggestion: if you think you might go two or three times in a year do invest in the membership option. You won't be sorry. Great fun and learning for all!!

  • So much fun for the whole family. There is so much to do and see, so worth it. It does take all day to do everything and see everything without rushing, so pack some snacks. Has great photo ops. If you have children this is a must-go. (Really clean restrooms)

  • Science was great! Union station offers so much and our wrist bands allowed us to go in and out to explore other things in union station. My kids loved the water part and outside. It was so interactive. We went Labor Day and it wasn’t crowed. They had the best time. We will definitely be back!!!

  • My kids and I really enjoyed science city. And even better we were able to go for educator weekend. I really enjoyed the brain exhibits. The kids loved the outdoor equipment. Well, they really enjoyed it all. I was so pleased that even though many people enjoyed educator weekend it didn't feel too overcrowded. I was disappointed that all the planetarium spots were filled up, but we did go later in the day, so it was understandable. And enough stuff to fill our time. Loved that we were able to have a parking voucher.

  • Was a super cool place, seemed like an awesome place for children however when we were buying tickets and asking what exhibit would be best for us (23+ year old couple) the woman directed us there declining to mention that it was for children 12 and under. It looked fun and interesting but would have been better if we had our god children and had exhibits that were adult sized...
