Það sem verður gert

Join Atlas Obscura in partnership with Union Station Redevelopment Corporation for a behind-the-scenes tour of Washington Union Station, where you will learn the secrets of Daniel Burnham's 1907 architectural masterpiece! The opening of DC's opulent Union Station energized the city and forever changed how Washingtonians traveled. More than a century later, the station, the third most visited tourist destination in the world, still buzzes with travelers, trains, and history.

On this two-hour tour, we will explore spaces within Union Station that the 37 million passengers, tourists, and shoppers who pass through the station rarely get to see. You will climb steps and open doors into areas where the public is not normally granted access, be shown unique vantage points to view and photograph the station, gain up-close looks at the magnificent details and ornamentation of the station, as well as learn what is being done today to preserve Union Station for years to come.

A percentage of the proceeds will go toward ongoing preservation efforts at Union Station.

Sarah was our guide, and she was fantastic. She knew everything about the Union Station, she was engaged, and she was also such a nice person. She made the tour - both my husband and myself enjoyed it tremendously!!
