In this beautiful photo essay of the largest city in Missouri, become inspired! Visit Union Station, Liberty Memorial, and Bartle Hall for up close views of the blue skies in Kansas City.
Union Station is 850,000 square feet. When it was originally built in 1914 it had 900 rooms. It was the nation's largest Railway Express Building. Not only is the train station alive and well, but its 95-foot ceilings and 3,500-pound chandeliers in Grand Hall bring tourists from around the world. Some museum exhibits are housed at Union Station, as well as fine dining restaurants and shops.
Liberty Memorial is not only a national landmark, but home to the National World War I Museum. Permanent installation exhibits are one of the hallmarks of the museum.
Bartle Hall, Kansas City's Convention Center, boast over 300,000 square feet in the center of downtown. The Convention Center crosses Highway I-670 where pylons support steel cable suspension. On top of the pylons are aluminum installation pieces called "Sky Stations" by artist R.M. Fisher.
