About National World War I Museum And Liberty Memorial, Kansas City

A national historic Landmark of USA and the official World War I Museum of the country, Liberty Memorial and the National World War I Museum is dedicated to the soldiers of America who sacrificed their lives in World War I and the veterans who survived the war.

The Memorial is built on the fund raised by philanthropists of the Kansas and the Missouri state. With a non-profit organization maintaining the memorial and the premises since the early 20the century, the Museum was added in the early 21st century.

The liberty memorial is designed in classic Egyptian revival style and has a limestone exterior construction.  The grand aesthetic design of the monument is worth observing. The tall memorial tower illuminates in the evening by bright orange light which adds to the beauty of the tower.

The museum tells a tale of the war and has a huge collection of documents, books and 3-d objects describing the pre-war and the post war era in USA. Frequented by visitors since its opening, national Museum is a must-visit.

  • Located in beautiful Penn Valley Park, the World War I Museum is a must visit when in Kansas City. The view from the outside of the museum overlooks Union Station with the downtown skyline in the background. There is a tower which gives even better views but is currently under renovation (but is worth going up in when the work is complete). The admission price is good for two days which is a great deal as there is so much to see. The displays are informative and there are plenty of videos which educate on the events of the war. There is an art gallery (extra price in addition to general admission) which I haven't been to but understand it is worth the price. As part of the general admission, there are two additional buildings that can be explored, but I have yet to do this as we normally run out of time viewing the general displays.

  • The WWI Museum is a great experience. You can enjoy great views of Kansas City, especially from the top of the tower. Highly recommend you go up to the top. There are so many interesting items, videos and stories. The introduction video they have you start off with is informative of how the war got started. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and helpful. This is a must-do if you're from out of town.

  • Such a moving experience, and incredible displays to learn about the Great War. My favorite exhibits were details about life in the trenches. They have a cutout that shows you what the inside of a trench would have looked like. As well as some live re-enactment soldiers toward the end that were dressed in uniform of their respective countries. And gave accounts of what typical life would have been like. Highly recommend if you have some time to spend in KC!

  • I totally recommend this place if you are visiting Kansas City! You won't want to miss going up into the memorial for a stunning view of the entire city! If you are planning on visiting this place, please give yourself at least two whole days to visit! There is so much to see here that it will take you that long to actually enjoy the experience. My husband and I enjoy history, especially war history. But that being said, I can see people who do not enjoy history as much as we do enjoying this place because while there is a LOT of information to read, there are also TONS of artifacts, movies, and interactive experiences here. There are also plenty of things for kids to interact with as well.

  • The World War I Museum is an extraordinary piece of Kansas City's landscape. History buffs and general tourists alike will enjoy a long afternoon of exploring. Tips: Admission is good for 2 days. Bank of America customers receive free admission the 1st full weekend of every month. (mycityadventures)
