WWI Museum

While in KC we wanted to see the WWI Museum.  This was truly one of the highlights of our trip.  I would recommend it to anyone. 
Since we got there a little early, we took some time to walk around the grounds, it was a very nice morning.  Here I had fallen off the cliff, and was holding on....
Kevin also almost fell off, but caught himself at the very last second...

 Looking over to Union Station (see later post), we did get to see the Titanic Exhibit. 

Here is Kevin at the bottom of the Liberty Memorial Tower. 

We did get to go to the top and here is a small panoramic view
And the view looking down the side...

Inside the museum was some interesting artifacts.  They also had some really good displays showing you what it was like in the trenches.

This area below, was really neat.  Where the shadow is was actually a very large screen where they showed a movie about how the US entered the war and the events leading up to that. 
Here I am waiting for the movie to begin...

One of the things that was interesting was the war posters.  Reminded us of the time we were in Chicago at the Art Institute and saw the War Posters there. 
Overall this was a very powerful display and we really enjoyed visiting the museum.  We would recommend it to anyone who found themselves in the area.
