The entrance floor is made of glass where visitors can look

down into a field of poppies

They have displays from every country's branch of

service involved in the war. The price is very affordable.

WWI Surgeon's kit

We learned from Nina Jean Rohlfs that the museum

houses some of her WWI sheet music!

At our hotel, they were celebrating the formation of the

35th Infantry Division in 1917; a lot of the men were from

Kansas and Nebraska, and their headquarters was at

Ft. Leavenworth. 

It was a new experience for me to get around downtown

through the LINKS (above street level covered walkways),

and of course there's lots of places to shop, and

Union Station. All in all, a great 3 days!

"No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world,

is so formidable as the will and moral courage

of free men and women." - Ronald Reagan
