National WWI Museum and Memorial Commemorates America

The National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City is commemorating America’s entry into WWI throughout the remainder of 2017. Designated by Congress as the Nation’s WWI Museum in 2014, the Museum holds the most diverse collection of World War I objects and documents in the world, and is the second-oldest public museum dedicated to preserving objects, history and personal experiences of the war. Life-size trenches, recovered tanks and informative films provide a comprehensive, interactive experience that explores the many countries that were involved in the conflict.  Visitors can also experience the 217-foot Liberty Memorial Tower, a National Historic Landmark, which provides the highest viewpoint of Kansas City. Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace is just one of the exhibits curated for the Centennial that will be on temporary display throughout the next year. Vive L’amerique!, features recovered artwork from a small Paris elementary school in 1927. To plan your visit, click here.
