"Los Angeles Conservancy"

1 p.m.- 2:30 p.m. (timed entry) Union Station, Downtown Los Angeles

Please join us for a fun-filled event at Union Station to showcase our exciting new Kids' Union Station tour and booklet. Bring your family for a tour of this beloved landmark and special activities, all designed for the young and young at heart.

The first Conservancy walking tour created specifically for children and families, the Kids' Union Station tour will be offered on a regular basis. Using a child's natural enthusiasm for trains, the tour will include a bit of Los Angeles history and a bit of architectural appreciation, and will be geared to kids as well as their parents and grandparents.

The Kids' Guide to Union Station will be the latest addition to our set of kids’ guides, which includes booklets about Broadway, Wilshire Boulevard, and Los Angeles City Hall. For downloadable versions of these booklets and additional activities, visit the Kids Page on the Conservancy's website.

This event will also celebrate the kickoff of the Conservancy's new Youth Outreach Program. Through expanded family-friendly activities, the Conservancy hopes to foster the next generation of preservationists, who will learn to value our city’s built environment through the unique stories that historic buildings tell. With the addition of our new part-time youth outreach coordinator, we will continue to develop new ways to reach out to a younger audience that will ultimately engage all of us more fully in protecting the city we love.

To purchase tickets, please select your preferred time slot and ticket type from the drop-down menu below. Tickets are $5 for kids (12 and under) and members of the Conservancy, and $10 for the general public. To buy more than one ticket type, please add the first type to your cart, then return to this page to select an additional type of ticket. 
We apologize for any inconvenience.
