Take time out this weekend to honor the fallen of all American wars when the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial (100 West 26th Street, 816-784-1918) presents a weekend of free public lectures, exhibitions and displays. Today's events include these family-friendly diversions. See theworldwar.org for more details.

The Honoring Our History Traveling Museum, sponsored by Waddell and Reed, is an 18-wheeler that begins its 75-city journey today in front of Union Station (30 West Pershing Road, 816-462-2020).
