Union Station is privileged to be the premier host of the upcoming, limited, three-city North American tour of POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION. In honor of this opportunity, an exclusive grand opening celebration – with all the style and sophistication expected -- is being planned. Your presence is requested. This grand kickoff will feature the sights, sounds and tastes of Italy . . . an immersive evening not soon to be forgotten. And importantly, all proceeds will directly benefit the Union Station Preservation Fund.
You and your guests will be the first to travel back in time to that fateful morning in 79 A.D. when Pompeii bustled as a commercial port and strategic military and trading city. Experience the lives of the city’s residents . . . how they lived, loved, worked, and played.
Clear your calendar as we celebrate Kansas City’s storied Italian heritage (Italian lineage not required!) while supporting the preservation of Kansas City’s beloved Union Station.
