KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The National World War I Museum and Memorial at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City has broken its attendance record again.

It’s the second year in a row that attendance at the site has gone up beyond the previous year’s attendance. The memorial says it had 257,830 visitors through the third week in November, breaking last year’s record of 235,271.

Memorial President Matthew Naylor says people in Kansas City and around the world have embraced the museum.

A special exhibit, “Sand to Snow,” about the global nature of the war, runs through April 10. Another exhibit about American volunteers in the war opens in April.
