KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City is set to undergo about $6.4 million in upgrades that will include a new exhibit gallery.

The museum, which opened in 2006, is planning to renovate empty space at the site to house the first of a planned series of traveling exhibits about the war on loan from governments and museums around the world.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/2hCxSk6) that the 3,500-square-foot Wylie Gallery is part of a $6.4 million package of improvements on the memorial grounds. Work is expected to begin early next year on the gallery.

Other improvements include enhancing educational and other programming and reworking the artificial poppy field beneath the glass bridge leading to the exhibits.
