“Well-restored train station”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

This train station has been lovingly restored and would appeal to any train buffs or people interested in the history of the local area. When I went there was a small exhibition about famous wild west figures whose lives were also connected to Kansas in some way - Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill Hickock and others. Having a family connection myself with the Union Pacific, I found it very interesting.

“Beautiful station”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We had to do a quick tour on our way out of town and our guide did an excellent job hitting the highlights of the station. Beautifully restored with nice exhibits. You could spend about an hour so. We had also seen the restored Union Station in Omaha and this is another great Union Pacific building.

“Trains and history”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

What a beautiful building, very nicely restored. If you enjoy trains and history make sure you visit, several trains still go by everyday. Alot of history inside and out!

“Worth going to”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

What a fun place. All free (donations accepted and appreciated). Drive there and park. Only takes a hour or so for a guided tour. Really interesting and fun. Huge train display that was donated and it runs! Little gift shop, so, so. No food served there, so eat first.

“Flags!”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

There's a great display of every state flag in front of the old station. For the flag lover, it's definitely worth a stop!
