Celebrate Lincoln's Birthday at Union Station

It looks like a fun weekend to visit Union Station.

Purchase a ticket to Science City and for just a penny more, you can visit Union Station's exhibit on Lincoln called The Tsar and the President, Alexander II and Abraham Lincoln.

Other Activities:
FREE cupcakes for kids inside Science City
Available from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday through Monday, until they're all gone

Take your photo as Abe and Mary
Life-size cutouts are located outside the exhibit entrance. Put your face in the cutout and pretend you're the President or First Lady!

Design your own penny
The U.S. Mint is releasing four new penny designs this year in honor of Lincoln's 200th birthday. At Union Station, try your hand at designing your own penny. Take your creation home or leave it behind for display at the Money Museum inside the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
