ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – A new attraction is flying into Union Station.

As first reported Thursday on KMOX Radio’s Total Information AM, Circus Harmony, a school inside City Museum which teaches people how to clown around, is opening the Circus Harmony Flying Trapeze School under the train shed.

“The flying trapeze just doesn’t fit in our glass ring on the third floor of the City Museum,” says artistic and executive director of Circus Harmony, Jessica Hentoff.

So this April the Circus Harmony Flying Trapeze School will open in its new location behind Union Station, but Hentoff expects it to quickly become an attraction that is hard to miss.

“You will see the flying rig, and you’ll be able to watch people fly,” she says. “It’s going to be a thing when you want to come and see the fish and go on the paddle boat. People are often just going to be entertained watching people flying.”

The rest of Circus Harmony’s classes will remain in the City Museum building.

Hentoff says its just another step in the revitalization of the historic landmark. “The new ownership wants to make [Union Station] both business and family-friendly,” she says.

But she wouldn’t elaborate on what else Union Station’s new owner Steve O’Loughlin has planned, but says, “they have a lot of great plans in the works.”
