Located in Kansas City, it has been designated as the nation's official war memorial and museum dedicated to World War I by the United States Congress. The 32,000-square-foot facility focuses on global events before 1914 that led to World War I, the 1918 armistice and the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. Its two galleries feature items such as a Renault FT Tank, uniforms like the Model 1915 Field Jacket of Paul von Hindenburg, maps and photographs, munitions, international propaganda posters, state-of-the-art interactive displays, and replica trenches. There are also two theaters with educational narratives, the Edward Jones Research Center. R.A. Long Education Center, J.C. Nichols Auditorium, and the Over There Café.

To enter the exhibit space, visitors would have to cross a glass bridge situated above a field of 9,000 red poppies representing the combatant deaths in the war. The museum was designed by Harold Van Buren Magonigle of the Westlake Construction Company. It is of the Beaux Arts Classicism and Egyptian Revival architectural styles. On September 20, 2006, the museum was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and designated a National Historic Landmark (NHL). Today, it is managed by a nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the Kansas City Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners.
