  • National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial
    The National World War I Museum is the nation's official museum devoted to WWI, that has been designated by the Congress, and opening in December, 2006. It is housed in a subterranean structure that enormously increased the size and space of the previous buildings that are still located on the main deck of the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri. The museum tells the story of that horrific war and the related events that happened around the world, from before 1914 and to the armistice that was signed in 1918, and the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. Visitors are welcomed to the museum by crossing a glass bridge that spans across a glorious field of 9000 poppies, every flower representing a thousand dead soldiers. Inside are two theaters, a 20,000 square foot research center and library, museum store, multi-purpose conference room, and displays with period relics like guns, maps, a tank, uniforms ad photographs of the main forces. The final group of galleries showcase the military and civilian contributions to the war and President Woodrow Wilson's attempts at peace. The museum occasionally hosts authors, films about the war and prominent guest lecturers. There is a spectacular frieze outside that tells of the progress from war to peace that is 148 feet long and 18 feet tall. The museum has many interactive areas that will allow you to view various aspects of the war, like the Portrait Wall, an interactive video wall that lets you learn about those involved in the war, interactive table that lets you make your own propaganda posters, then email them and so much more.
