The National World War I Museum at the Liberty Memorial made the March-April issue of AAA Midwest Traveler as a key place to see.
The magazine lets people know that it was 100 years ago that the first shots were fired starting “The War to End All Wars.” The article tells people interested in touring where the World War I Museum is located in Kansas City, and that through April it is presenting a special centennial exhibition, “Road to War: World Power and Imperialism, 1904-1914.”
Kansas City also gets promoted with the article mentioning the community’s multimillion-dollar investment in restoring the facility. The magazine notes other features about the museum and the Liberty Memorial.
The exhibits “literally put visitors in the trenches of the war,” the article says. The artifacts of that great war should serve as a reminder of the millions of lives lost and that no war is worth the cost of human suffering.
