Residents at home may watch virtual Memorial Day ceremonies today from Liberty Memorial

Although the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, is physically closed on today, Memorial Day, there will be three ceremonies streamed online that will be free to the public.

While the public will not attend these ceremonies because of the risk of COVID-19, they can watch online at theworldwar.org/live.

At 10 a.m., a Memorial Day ceremony will occur to honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

At noon, a brief Memorial Day Bell Tolling Ceremony will commemorate those who lost their lives with a bell that was rung on a daily basis in Kansas City by the Daughters of the American Revolution during World War I.

At 2 p.m., the World War I Museum and Memorial will share the Walk of Honor Dedication Ceremony, which recognizes individuals who have recently had a Walk of Honor brick dedicated in their name.

The National World War I Museum and Memorial has the most comprehensive collection of World War I documents and objects in the world, according to a spokesman.

Each ceremony can be seen at theworldwar.org/live. They are free and can be watched by the public.
