Groupon Deal: 1/2 Off Admission to Natl World War I Museum

A glass bridge is suspended above a field of 9,000 red poppies, each flower representing 1,000 soldiers who died in the Great War. This living symbol is one of the many powerful exhibits within the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, the only museum in the US dedicated exclusively to World War I and dedicated by Congress as the nation’s official WWI museum in 2004.

Designed by Ralph Appelbaum, who also lent his expertise to such landmarks as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National World War I Museum integrates first-person accounts into a narrative that flows through its permanent and visiting exhibitions. The museum’s collection comprises WWI artifacts such as field artillery, a 1917 Harley Davidson motorcycle, and unopened cigarette packs from a 1914 Princess Mary Christmas Box. Beyond the exhibitions, the museum extends to Over There Café and a gift shop.

Choose Between Two Options

$22 for an admission package for a family of four (up to a $44 total value)

  • Two adult admissions (up to a $14 value each)
  • Two youth admissions for ages 6–17 (up to an $8 value each)

$14 for two adult admissions (up to a $28 value)

Though National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
