Revitalized and once again welcoming travelers and visitors of all kinds, Union Depot is what it’s always been – a meeting place, a starting point, a hub of activity, a home to celebrations much anticipated and long remembered.

In the next chapter of its existence, this one-of-a-kind facility is playing a key part of the dramatic transformation of Lowertown and will serve as a multimodal transportation hub. A true gathering place past, present and future, Union Depot is also the perfect setting for public events, private functions, arts and cultural festivals, concerts and more.

Union Depot was completed in 1926. It was placed on to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1974, and under ownership of the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority (RCRRA), it underwent extensive renovations in 2011-2012 totaling $243 million.

Take a tour to learn about the history, recent renovation, sustainability initiatives, expanding transit options and much more. Few sites within the Twin Cities offer such a clear view of the past, present and future of our community. Book a reservation to explore this one-of-a-kind destination. Public tours are available every other Tuesday at 11:00 am. Tours start promptly at their scheduled time and depart under the East clock, by the train engine cart, located in the Head House. Tours take approximately 60 minutes.
