Union Station Kansas City Website Redesign

At Union Station Kansas City, we are proud of our role as caretakers of such an important piece of Kansas City history. Since 1914, Union Station and its iconic facade has served as a travel hub for millions—those lucky enough to come home from war, those reconnecting with their families or exploring unknown places, all five World War I allied commanders, and so many more.

When we reopened to the public in 1999, we invited the local community and the world to come experience the new Union Station, complete with attractions, food & drink, exhibits, entertainment, and events for the entire family. It is our mission to preserve our historic monument and continue to inspire others to never stop learning or exploring.

In our continuous efforts to better ourselves and the ways we can serve the community, we have teamed up with Lifted Logic, a Kansas City marketing agency, to undergo a website redesign and bring you an amazing new way to experience Union Station Kansas City.

A website redesigned to serve you better

Whether Union Station is new to you or you’ve grown up visiting our attractions and exhibits, we hope you enjoy the Union Station Kansas City website redesign!

Meeting with the creative team at Lifted Logic helped us express and prioritize our goals for our new website. Going in, we specified several key elements important to us:

  • A fresh design focused on maximizing the user experience
  • Streamlining the process of buying tickets
  • A modular design we can easily update ourselves
  • Ensuring site visitors have easy access to all the exciting things going on at Union Station
  • Easier ways to plan a group visit

Though “bring our ticketing system online” sounds like a simple task, it actually takes a lot of programmatic work. During the web development process, Lifted Logic’s developers worked with our system’s application programming interface (API) to ensure smooth communication between our on-site systems and the web.

We also wanted to include fun interactivity, functionality, and animations throughout the main website and each of our attraction websites. Lifted Logic introduced us to Pilgrim Animation, a talented Kansas City-based custom animator that added animated elements around our website. We especially love the animated features on the Science City homepage map 😊

This website redesign project was no small undertaking. Besides the new Union Station website with amazing interactivity, animations, and a wealth of information, we also worked with Lifted Logic to complete website redesigns for the attractions inside Union Station Kansas City:

Lifted Logic’s talented team also graciously donated a digital exhibit experience for our upcoming 2021 exhibit: Auschwitz. Not Long Ago. Not Far Away. – Opening June 14

“As someone who remembers special lunches with her mom in the Union Station food court during summer breaks (any fellow Original Pizza lovers here?!), life-changing field trips to Science City, seeing bugs up close at the Extreme Screen, performing on stage in the Grand Hall at Christmastime, and so many other good times, I couldn’t have been more excited about working with Union Station on its website redesign.

I love the new sites and I couldn’t be more excited to help share all the magic this incredible building holds!”
