National World War I Museum And Liberty Memorial - Review
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.

National World War I Museum And Liberty Memorial, Kansas City Reviews
What an incredible place! It never fails to amaze me how they built them back in the day. The entire complex has huge Parks, a very helpful staff, and many different parts to the museum. Pay the extra $5 and go to the display on the first floor and up on the tower, it's worth every penny of it. Don't forget their to side museums up on the second level with the tower, one of them holds a display about American and Australian cooperation and more from World War II Afghanistan. A really interesting display. I must see if you're a history buff and in the Kansas City area.
The WWI museum was amazing. I enjoyed the main museum in the center of the building which is structured around a theater. I wish I had more time to look there because the collections were quite large. One display had about 20-30 suit coats worn by service men. If I had known the attraction of The Tower was a ride up an elevator to see the city, I would have skipped it. The art gallery was really good too because of the murals. Definitely go see this place. You will get real glimpses into what went on because of the letters, uniforms and many other artifacts in the collections.
The World War I Museum in Kansas City is a wonderful way to not forget 'the forgotten war'. An awesome collection of authentic artifacts in a very walkable, comfortable setting. Plus the plaza above the museum provides a magnificent view of Kansas City plus two additional collections to tour and the inspirational tower (with elevator to the top). A low cost day of education & remembrance.
This WWI Museum and Memorial is one of a few must-see attractions in Kansas City. Topping a hill near Union Station, the memorial towers over the rest of the city. And though the hill may take a while to summit, it gives an amazing view of the city skyline. The memorial pillar itself is both imposing and inspiring, reminding us of the immense gravity of war - and the valor of those who have served in it. The museum lies within the hill, underneath the memorial. The entrance fee can be a bit steep if you have a large family, but the experience is exceptional. Learn about every aspect of the war through multiple channels: short videos, reading material, objects from the war, and interactive learning activities. This made learning about the war fun, and I definitely left the museum knowing and appreciating much more than I did before. So if you're visiting Kansas City - or if you've been here your whole life and just want to have fun while learning about World history - then check out the WWI Museum and Memorial for a truly memorable time.
The museum was a really great place to visit. Went up to the very top of the tower and got magnificent views of the city from there. There was a 90 minute tour through the museum showing well preserved artifacts of the war. The tour guide was amazing - It was a great way of getting context on the events of the world war. The part about the events leading up to America's involvement in the war was really good to learn from
