Topeka - Kansas Museum of History - Museum After Hours

Music of World War I

The Kaw Valley Cornet Band shares a variety of tunes that reflect the values, beliefs, and attitudes during World War I. Music that spoke of a speedy victory at the start of the war changed to reflections on separation and sadness by its end. Music from the Allied nations reminds us this truly was a world war.

Join us for this special Museum After Hours program series, 6:30 p.m. Friday, July 14. The programs complement the Kansas Museum of History's special exhibit, Captured:  The Extraordinary Adventures of Colonel Hughes, and honor the 100th anniversary of World War I.

The Museum will be open until 6:30 p.m., admission is half price after 5 p.m. The Museum Store will also be open until 6:30 p.m.
