As demonstrated in countless exhibits across the Kansas City metro area, history (including local, state, and national) is valued, appreciated, and even revered. As many individuals with clear memories of the first World War pass away, one organization in Kansas City aims to ensure that the history and crucial lessons of the "Great War" are never forgotten: the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.
With exhibits featuring the more than 55,000 items collected that are relevant to World War I, visitors are sure to garner both an appreciation and treasure trove of knowledge about this remarkable piece of world and American history. Items included in the museum are uniforms, record books, and weapons, but also of note is the Liberty Tower, and the opportunity to take part in interactive exhibits.
Located at 100 W. 26th Street in the heart of Kansas City, MO, this treasured museum is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 10am until 5pm, with other exhibits, such as as the Liberty Memorial Tower, closing just thirty minutes earlier. For a mere $6 for children under 17, $10 for seniors and students with ID, and $12 for adults, visitors are guaranteed one of the most memorable and well-known experiences the KC area has to offer.
True to honoring its military roots, all active duty military and career military members are given free admission, and, in order to ensure that as many people have access to the museum as possible, Wednesdays offer a free ticket of equal or lesser value to one ticket that has been purchased. Adding to this amazing opportunity is the fact that each ticket purchased is good for two consecutive days, leaving no excuse for Kansas City natives and visitors not to investigate this remarkable place!
