“journey through the great war”

The National World War I Museum and Memorial of the United States is located in Kansas City, Missouri. Opened to the public as the Liberty Memorial museum in 1926, it was designated in 2004 by the United States Congress as America's official museum dedicated to World War I. The Museum and Memorial are managed by a non-profit organization in cooperation with the Kansas City Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners. The museum reopened to the public in December 2006 with an expanded, award-winning facility to exhibit an artifact collection that began in 1920. The National World War I Museum tells the story of the Great War and related global events from their origins before 1914 through the 1918 armistice and 1919 Paris Peace Conference. Visitors enter the exhibit space within the 32,000-square-foot facility across a glass bridge above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each one representing 1,000 combatant deaths.

Wonderful museum dedicated to WWI! Friendly and helpful staff! Get there before 3 if you plan to eat in the cafe. 😁 The exhibits were wonderful! We could have spent more time here than we did-but we were hungry. A definite must see in K.C.

Crazy War, Amazing way to explain these horrific events, We went on a Wednesdays for their discount days price. The short movie presentations at the beginning and the mid point really provide context to how it started and how the US joined the war. We travelled up to the top of the tower, great view, go first, before it gets too hot.
