Thanks to roadtrippers for finding this MUST see drop by -- any history or military buff will love this WWI monument and museum. Incredible views from the tower and the museum is updated and educational! The workers there are wonderful volunteers. Plan at least 2 hours to still see it all quickly. More time to take your time. Highly recommend!

Thought it was awesome! The view from the top alone was well worth the ticket to the museum. It was just a stop over for us (a touristy road trip picture) but we bought a ticket so we could see the view from the top and decided to take a look around. The volunteers were friendly and spoke to us about the exhibits. It side tracked us but was well worth it.

One of the best museums I have visited. I had a teacher discount so I took the elevator up to the top. The videos they show to highlight the exhibits are very well done and supplement precisely.

Absolutely a must see!! We arrived close to closing and were able to go up the elevator to see a stunning view of the city! The people who work at the memorial and museum are passionate about what they do and are so friendly. Make sure to check out the gift shop in the museum - cute stuff! They have gifts for service members too!

The family and I stopped here on a road trip home from PA, to CA. This was one of the coolest stops we did. We did not do the museum, so I can only review the outside attractions. The memorial is amazing for any history buff, or lover of masonry. The statues, and buildings are amazing and the property is wonderful to simply walk around on, and let the kids loose. It is well maintained, and is absolutely gorgeous. The tower, however, was the highlight of our trip here. for something like $5/person, some gentlemen will take you all the way to the top of the center tower, and since Missouri is so flat, the view was amazing. Anyone who stops here, simply must go tot he top of the tower, as you can see all of kansas city, and then sum from up there.
