Trends / History

The National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, is home to an extensive collection of artifacts detailing the United States’ involvement in World War I.


The museum first opened in 1926 as the Liberty Museum. The building fell into disrepair and was closed in 1994 due to safety reasons. The museum reopened in 2006 as the National World War I Museum and Memorial. The museum features permanent and temporary exhibitions and educational programs to engage a range of visitors. The historical materials are preserved for generations to come to view.


Opt to take an audio tour of the museum for $5. The tour includes 24 stops throughout the museum and takes about 40 minutes. The guide is available in English, French, German and Spanish.


The museum is closed Monday during the regular season. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the museum is open daily. General adult admission costs $18 and grants visitors access to the Main Gallery, Exhibit Hall, Memory Hall and Ellis Gallery. Children younger than 6 enter for free. There are additional fees for entrance to the Wylie Gallery ($3) and the Liberty Memorial Tower ($2), which can be added when purchasing general admission tickets. Visitors who wish to only visit the tower and not the museum can do so for $5.
