Technology Gives a New Face to the St. Louis Union Station

In September of 1894, St. Louis Union Station opened as the largest and most intricate terminal in the United States. The focal point of the station was the Grand Hall, which featured a 65-foot barrel vaulted ceiling with stained glass windows.

Today this magnificent historical site has been transformed into a luxury hotel property that remains a must-see destination for tourists. The Grand Hall was recently updated as part of a renovation project with the largest permanently installed indoor projection mapping show in the United States. The amazing experience immerses visitors in a feature presentation across the entirety of the vaulted ceiling.

The various shows and vignettes focus on key points throughout the city's history and are bolstered by surround sound tracks customized to each of the vignettes.
