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.

An incredible experience for history buffs. The World war 1 museum in Kansas city is unique and a marvelous experience. Although the admission prices are at at high there are some decent discounts for veterans and for senior citizens. This jewel resides underneath Kansas city's famous Liberty memorial. Gun collectors will enjoy the marvelous displays of authentic period weaponry. There's plenty of exhibits to get anyone interested even small children. I have been to some of the best museums in the world and this definitely ranks in the top three.
Love this museum, I bring my student from Nebraska as a capstone after we have finished studying. The tour guides are always knowledgeable, kind, and keep it entertaining. The museum itself is incredible! From the recreation of no man's land to the tank, and artillery shelling. I love to come and learn every year.
Amazing! Spent 3 hours and could have easily spent 3 more. So many artifacts, plethora of memorabilia, many hand written notes, uniforms, personal stories, etc. Tower visit was amazing; short ride to the top, walk around outside and make a trip back down. Exhibition halls are superbly laid out. 11 year boy even enjoyed; although got bored a few times. A great tribute to the Great War.
Spent a few hours here while visiting family in Kansas City. Went on a Wednesday which I think is half price admission, but it would still be worth the full $16. Tickets are good for two consecutive days. I could probably spend two full days, but almost too much information to absorb. Fascinating for any mild history or military buffs. Also took the elevator to the top of the monument. Great views of downtown Kansas City.
This is by far one of the best war memorials and museums in the country. Besides the amazing collection of relics from the Great War, the amount of information available here is staggering. The shop has a great selection and everyone on staff or who volunteers here is friendly and knowledgeable. The cafe has some era food too. Make sure you go up the tower for a great view of the city.
