FOR HOME AND COUNTRY: The Great War and Kansas City presented by The Box Gallery at The Box Gallery, Kansas City MO

FOR HOME AND COUNTRY: The Great War and Kansas City at The Box Gallery runs November 1st – January 31, 2020. Gallery is open Monday-Friday 8am – 8pm.

When World War I ended in 1918, the nation celebrated victory.  Patriotism was at a peak, and the citizens of Kansas City opened their hearts and wallets to support their country.  This exhibit recalls Kansas City at the Great War’s conclusion in 1918-1919.  It was a time that transitioned Kansas City from the demands of war to the obligations and opportunities of a newly won peace and inspired the idea of constructing an iconic museum and memorial to remember those who served and sacrificed.


The Box Gallery is free and open to the public.
