War is never an easy topic to discuss with your children, especially young ones, but a visit here will help bring some understanding to this important chapter in U.S. and world history classes. It’s a sobering look at the “war to end all wars” and how that conflict nearly 100 years ago continues today. If parents are comfortable with the subject of guns, there is a children’s section that allows some hands on activity with weapons from that war.

Everyone will love a ride to the top of the Liberty Memorial, a 217-foot tall tower that honors those who served and died in the Great War. From its top, you have a great view of the city.
