My girlfriend and I visited the museum today and we were blown away. The museum was not only extremely well kept but the people were incredible. We walked in and were instantly greeted then later told 3 separate times how nice it was that we came to visit by different workers. Buying the tickets was a breeze and the different exhibits it allowed us to go to were well worth it. Overall it was a wonderful experience from not only getting to see well put-together, impactful exhibits but also be surrounded by friendly, helpful workers.
What a wonderful place to visit!. The tower has observatory level at the top that provides an amazing view of KS. We went in late Oct so it was surprisingly chilly and very windy at the top. We were able to get some amazing pics especially up the elevator shaft. The museums are also a must do when in the area. You can purchase tickets for both in the museum.
This museum is has very informative displays and interactive stations. The museum itself is beautiful and you get a real sense of the history and horrors of the war. It is a bit expensive but we stayed for four hours and could've stayed longer except we got there too late in the day and it closed before we were done. The tower closes if it is cold and icy. They don't put salt down because they don't want to damage the limestone. They will give you coupons to come back to climb the tower if it is closed the day you visit.
There's not a prettier view of the city than right here looking over the edge. The neutral, fluent colors and architecture of this memorial are truly beautiful. I visit time and time again. I've gazed at the view and been up the tower but I think I've yet to go into the actual museum. Definitely on the go-do list!
One of the better museums I've visited. Probably the most in-depth and engaging displays regarding WW I history/events in the United States. The volunteers are what put this above and beyond. The free guided tour (with paid admission) we received was superb. Highly recommend this museum. Reasonable cost as well so if you're in KC and want to learn about history, you can't miss this. Plan 2.5-3 hours.
