National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, Missouri, USA
The National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial inspires thought, dialogue, and learning to make the experiences of the World War I era meaningful and relevant for present and future generations.The site for the Liberty Memorial was dedicated on November 1, 1921, and the Museum's Collection was begun in the same year. It now comprises over 55,000 items, including original artefacts, archive material and books.
The Museum memorialises those who lost their lives in the Great War, and documents the experiences of those at home and abraod. The collections include many items relating to children and childhood, including a German child’s play uniform that is a small-scale version of that worn by his soldier father (pictured, right).
The National World War One Museum has close links with Rutgers University and is pleased to contribute to the work of the project.
