Missouri Museum Named One of the Best in the World to Visit
If you enjoy history, there's a major website that says one of the best places in the world you can visit is in Missouri. It is true that it has few peers in documenting one of the most important periods of world history.
In TripSavvy's 2022 Editor's Choice Awards (which are a very prestigious internet thing), they named the Best Places for History Buffs. Look no further than the Kansas City area for one at the top of their list. It's the National WWI Museum and Memorial and it really is a special place. The official YouTube channel for the museum gives a brief mission statement for what they present:
The National WWI Museum and Memorial is America's museum dedicated to remembering, interpreting and understanding the Great War and its enduring impact on the global community.
Did you know that 5 great Allied leaders met in November of 1921 in Kansas City, Missouri? I didn't. Until now.
TripSavvy notes that the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City has been visited by "General Colin Powell, President Barack Obama, Senator John McCain, and actor Kevin Costner" among millions of others. When heads of state and other leaders visit your place to honor history, you've certainly accomplished something.
The National WWI Museum and Memorial has a lot of events so following their official website is a good idea if you'd like to know what's happening at one of the best historical places in the world.
