Perched on the southern edge of downtown Kansas City, the towering Liberty Memorial has stood for decades in memory of World War I. With the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial , Kansas City is home to an internationally renowned museum and memorial that includes a comprehensive history of the First World War, complete with original objects, documents, video and more. When you enter the museum, you'll cross over the Paul Sunderland Glass Bridge, suspended over a symbolic poppy field that includes 9,000 flowers, each representing 1,000 deaths in tribute to the 9 million who died as a direct result of the war. In the heart of Kansas City's historic 18th and Jazz Vine District is the American Jazz Museum, a delightful and interactive space that pays tribute to the city's jazz history. Transport yourself back to the heyday of jazz with listening stations and then browse collections of photos, sheet music and posters. In the adjoining Blue Room, which resembles a 1930's-era nightclub, you'll enjoy jazz performances several nights a week. Note the nine tables on the venue's lower lever, which serve as display cases for Kansas City jazz artifacts like tickets stubs, musician contracts and more.
