KANSAS CITY, MO. – In conjunction with events occurring downtown on Wednesday, Feb. 15 to celebrate the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVII win, the National WWI Museum and Memorial will be open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and is offering a special discount admission rate of $10.
On Jan. 12, 1970, fans gathered on the grounds of the Museum and Memorial to celebrate the 1970 Chiefs’ Super Bowl title. Fifty years later, on Feb. 5, 2020, fans returned to Kansas City’s front porch to celebrate a second time. And now, just two years after that historic win, the Museum and Memorial is excited to once again be a part of the Kansas City story and welcome Chiefs fans to its grounds.
The celebration features a parade at noon through downtown Kansas City followed by a Victory Rally at approximately 1:45 p.m. co-hosted on the grounds of Union Station and the National WWI Museum and Memorial. Spectators are invited to watch the rally from the North Lawn of the Museum and Memorial.
Fans looking for convenient parking can reserve a $35 parking pass for the Museum and Memorial’s Southeast Lawn. Spots are limited and will sell out quickly! Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Food and drinks will be available on the Memorial Courtyard, North Lawn and indoors at the Museum Café. In addition to the indoor Café, ticketed guests ($10) can access clean restrooms, the Museum Store and Museum and Memorial exhibitions. Children 5 and under are free.
Street closures will affect how fans are able to access the Museum and Memorial. For updated information on transit, public safety and other news relating to celebrations, fans are encouraged to sign up to receive notifications from ALERTKC by texting “KCPARADE” to 888-777.
Staging space as well as high-bandwidth internet access for broadcast outlets is available to the media from the Memorial Courtyard overlooking downtown Kansas City. The Liberty Memorial Tower is available to media wishing to capture the parade/rally from the top of the Tower. For both elements, space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Access must be coordinated in advance of the event date. Media interested in either element must contact Karis Erwin (816-888-8122; email@example.com).
