WWI museum to mark Veterans Day

Updated: 2013-11-08T01:12:22Z

The National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial has planned several activities to commemorate Veterans Day, which falls on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the day the Great War ended.

Sunday marks the start of a two-day car show outside the museum in conjunction with the Wounded Warriors Family Support’s “High Five Tour.”

More than 50 vintage Ford Mustangs from the Mustang Club of Greater Kansas City will be on display, along with the red, white and blue 2013 Mustang GT500 “Super Snake” that’s traveling with the tour. Show hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Veterans Day.

The museum, at 100 W. 26th St., is open for free Monday. World War I re-enactors will greet visitors, who can see the new “Road to War” exhibit outlining the events leading up to the war.

The Veterans Day ceremony will be from 10 to 11 a.m., including a remembrance of former U.S. Rep. Ike Skelton of Missouri, a staunch supporter of the military who died last month. A military canine demonstration will follow outdoors at 11 a.m.
