On the north side of the Science Museum Westbound GRTC Pulse Station is Broad Street Station (officially named Union Station of Richmond), which has been home to the Science Museum of Virginia since 1977. This impressive building was designed by architect John Russell Pope to serve passengers of the Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac (RF&P) and Atlantic Coast Line railroads. When it was completed in 1919, Broad Street Station was the nation’s first domed central railroad station. Broad Street Station served more than 30,000 passengers each day during World War II, but as passenger train travel decreased, the RF&P finally closed the station in 1975 and sold the building to the state. The Science Museum of Virginia is open daily and offers permanent and touring interactive exhibitions, films and special events. The Children’s Museum of Richmond is located next door, immediately north of the Science Museum. (2500 W. Broad St., 0.2 miles from Science Museum Eastbound GRTC Pulse Station, 0.1 mile from Science Museum Westbound GRTC Pulse Station.)
