Went with the family and only planned to stay 2-3 hours. There wasn't much entertainment for kids (3years and 3 months), so my wife brought the kids to the zoo and I stayed until they closed (7 hours).

I've lived here all my life and I can't believe this is the first time I have been to this museum! Go on Wednesday when all tickets are $7.

As a Vet, I generally appreciate and like military-themed museums, but I have to say, this is among the best I have ever seen. Informative, well laid out and interactive. My only disappointment is that I did nearly have enough time to see everything. Can't wait for an excuse to return to KC and see it again.

This was a beautiful and amazing museum. It's a shame that it is the only museum in the US of A dedicated to WW I. Make time for this place, bring a bag lunch and enjoy.

If you love history this is the place for information on WWI. We were there for 3 hours and could have spent more if we would have had more time. Will definitely have to go back.
