    The Liberty Memorial Museum reopened May 25. Split between two halls at the memorial tower's base, the museum houses about 300 artifacts from World War I -- a small fraction of the hundreds of thousands in its collection. It also features murals and maps painted in one of the two halls and interactive computers that explain the significance of the murals. Admission is $4 for children ages 12 and over, $3 for seniors and children ages 6 to 11, and free for children under age 6. Admission will be free on May 25th, and on Veteran's Day, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.TOWER
