Enjoyed the glass displays in the lobby of what is now the courthouse. One of our party was not able to enter, as she had left her purse in the car and they do require ID.

It's great that a few classic large spaces like this have been preserved. Not filled in with kiosks or displays, just open with several massive Chihuly pieces shown beautifully against the natural light. Worth a visit!

You only get to peak in at the Chihulys exhibited there but the space is really very lovely. Remember it is a courthouse so, leave the pocket knife at home.

Who would have thought a train station could be so beautiful with Chuhuilly glass hanging in it! It is so unique! There is no charge. Be sure to walk across the incredible Chuhuilly glass bridge located just behind Union Station.

The outside was much more impressive than the inside. There are some neat things to see, some Chihuly glass and vintage photos of its railroad heyday, but it is a government building now and not a whole lot to see inside.
