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.

  • Absolutely worth it. You can purchase tickets and still come back the following day to complete the tour and look around. This worked out great for us and our schedule. Every aspect of this was really cool and everything was laid out in an organized way. The view from the Liberty Memorial Tower is totally awesome. Parking was good and the staff was very friendly and informative.

  • This museum is one of my favorites. You get to enjoy so much for an excellent price. It's the kind of place you can spend the entire day in but still visit again and again to walk away learning something new. Equipped with a wonderful and informative staff, you'll leave this place thinking about the next time you get to go back. Whether you live in KC or you're just passing through, you'll never waste a day here.

  • The World War I museum gets accolades as one of the best museums overall in the country. They're well deserved. The displays themselves are packed and fascinating. The layout and features are just as incredible. Take a ride up the monument tower to see a 360 view of Kansas City. Don't miss the two buildings on the top level. You'll find art and memorabilia not just from the American forces but from the main protagonists. Below in the main floor is a museum that walks you through the chronological progression of the war. It includes videos that explain the events leading to the war and the impact it had on the people involved. If you do everything including the tower ascent, plan on at least two hours.

  • Highly impressed with the level of strategic planning that had to be involved in the layout of this museum. Beyond all the great war relics (plane, tank, cannons, guns, trenches and uniforms) the detailed information presented in well organized manner was awesome. This is a gem in the heart of KC that locals and tourist should see. The view from the tower gives you an breathtaking view of downtown! To the curators of the museum I say thank you for making history come to life. Highly recommend you run to see this, if you love history.

  • A fantastic museum! My wife and I have stopped by twice now and wouldn't hesitate to go again. Lots of interesting artifacts and displays. The time line on the wall is very informative. It's also quite interesting how the exhibit is broken into two sides, before and after the US became involved in the war. Employees are all knowledgeable and friendly. Great view of the city from the tower as well!
