10 Weeks of Free Admission to Celebrate Our 10th Anniversary

We’re celebrating 10 years of the National World War I Museum and Memorial with 10 weeks of free admission. It’s all to thank you for your support. Our roots as a memorial to the men and women who served in the Great War go back to 1919, when Kansas City raised the initial funds for the Liberty Memorial.

But we didn’t stop there. Ten years ago, the doors to the National World War I Museum and Memorial opened. Since then we’ve grown into one of the world’s great museums. To thank you for your continued support, we invite you to experience the museum for free.

Read on to find three different ways to engage with us on social media and earn free admission Dec. 3, 2016 - Feb. 10, 2017. Show your social media efforts at ticketing to get in free during those 10 weeks. (You can take a screenshot or show your social media page.) You can also gain free admission and join in the events for Anniversary Week from Dec. 6-11, 2016.

How to Get Free Admission Dec. 3, 2016 - Feb. 10, 2017

Set your Facebook profile picture to the #HonorKC frame.

Breaking It Down

To add the frame to your profile picture, log in to your account and go to the profile picture frame feature at facebook.com/profilepicframes. Then click on the menu to the left of your profile picture, and select the National World War I Museum and Memorial frame from the “Causes” section of the drop down menu. Click “use as profile picture” to save. If you are unable to add a frame to your profile picture from the Facebook mobile app, make sure you’re using the latest app version.

Breaking It Down

Apply either the #HonorKC geofilter (limited-time availability) or the National WWI Museum & Memorial geofilter that shows up in Snapchat when you are near the Memorial grounds. Save the snap to your memories so that you can show it at the admission desk.

3. Share on Social Media

Make a “10” and share it on social media using #HonorKC.

Breaking It Down

Make a “10”—using the Liberty Memorial Tower as the “1” and the poppy flier, print ad, encircled arms, a fist, etc. as the “0”—and take a picture. Then post your pic to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat using #HonorKC.
