  • National World War Museum
    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.

  • Sea Life Kansas City
    The life inside SEA LIFE Aquarium Kansas City's tanks are like a Where's Waldo? book come to life, except the protagonists within the underwater tableau aren't awkwardly dressed like candy canes. Thousands of fish swirl through the waters here and you could easily spend hours picking out specific species. The octopus, on the other hand, swims in open view. So does other marine life?especially once you enter the ocean tunnel, which simulates the experience of walking across the ocean floor. Blacktip reef sharks swim overhead and flash their teeth at the cownose stingrays, who appear to smile back. The aquarium's more interactive attractions explain what makes undersea life so appealing. At the rockpool, for instance, education hosts explain the lives of coastal creatures, letting visitors touch everything in the exhibit, including sea stars and hermit crabs.? Even though SEA LIFE's Kansas City location holds more than 260,000 gallons of water, only so many creatures can call the aquarium home. To help marine life outside its walls, SEA LIFE also runs and participates in many conservation campaigns and programs. SEA LIFE aquariums rescue seals, find permanent homes for disabled sea turtles, and breed nine kinds of seahorses to help protect the endangered species from extinction.
