Top Attractions in Kansas City
National World War I Museum
The National World War 1 Museum offers a poignant counterpoint to Kansas City's livelier attractions. Buried below the 21-story Liberty Memorial, the museum engages and educates visitors while paying somber tribute to the victims of this war. A glass bridge connects the lobby to the galleries above a field of red poppies representing the war's 9 million casualties (816/784-1918; theworldwar.org).
