What a great experience! If you want to really take it all in plan on about 2 -3 hours.

Don't eat at the cafe, at least the pizza. Be ready to spend 3 hours if you want to read all the info, see the exhibits, and watch the informational videos. Very well put together museum.

You can definitely spend a day or two there! Plan your time well and go up in the tower early before the line gets long

A lot of information to read. The whole museum was very touching and even my children ages 7 and 4 stayed entertained for the 2+ hours that we were there. Very informative and well laid out.

Pace yourself. Don't spend so much time in the first section that by the time you reach the mid/end you've burnt out and blaze through everything.

Wear comfy shoes and plan to be there most of the day. There is a lot to see and a lot to read. Oh and watch the intro video!

Wear comfortable shoes, especially if you'll be exploring the grounds outside. LOTS of stairs. It's a wonderful experience.

From Our Editors

A glass bridge is suspended above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each flower representing 1,000 soldiers who died in the Great War. This living symbol is one of the many powerful exhibits within the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, the only museum in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to World War I and dedicated by Congress as the nation's official World War I museum in 2004. Named one of the top 25 museums in the U.S. in TripAdvisor's 2014 Travelers' Choice Awards, the Museum is also rated the No. 1 attraction in Kansas City.

Designed by Ralph Appelbaum, who also lent his expertise to such landmarks as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National World War I Museum integrates first-person accounts into a narrative that flows through its permanent and visiting exhibitions. The Museum's collection comprises World War I artifacts such as field artillery, a 1917 Harley Davidson motorcycle, and unopened cigarette packs from a 1914 Princess Mary Christmas Box. The Museum also includes Over There Caf? and a comprehensive gift store.
