Special tours are offered this month in celebration of Union Station’s 75th anniversary. Led by trained Metro Art Docents, the tours cover historic Union Station architecture and spaces not generally open to the public, including the old ticket concourse and former “Fred Harvey” restaurant, which operated 1939-67. Additionally, the tours explore artworks located in the Gold Line Portal, East Portal, inside the Metro Gateway Headquarters Building, and new artworks in the passageway.
Tours are free, and reservations are not required. Meet at the information booth inside the Alameda Street entrance to historic Union Station.
Tuesdays: May 20 and 27, 5:30-7:30pm
Sunday: May 25, 10:30am-12:30pm
