National WWI Museum and Memorial

National WWI Museum and Memorial
Kansas City, United States

Located on the east side of the Liberty Memorial Tower, Memory Hall contains a portion of the Panthéon de la Guerre, a monumental French painting depicting the Allied nations of World War I. Additionally, Memory Hall houses bronze tablets listing 441 Kansas Citians who died in World War I, computer kiosks that provide in-depth information about the Liberty Memorial and limited-run exhibitions.

Following the style of Egyptian Revival architecture, the Liberty Memorial (now known as the National WWI Museum and Memorial) was designed in the early 1920s by H. Van Buren Magonigle. From 1995-2006, Abend Singleton Associates restored the original Memorial to meet national standards for accessibility and security and designed the state-of-the art Museum space and supporting facilities underneath the Liberty Memorial. Ralph Appelbaum Associates designed the innovative and engaging exhibitions in the new gallery space.
