Travel to The City of Fountains — Kansas City, Missouri via deluxe motorcoach. (B,L,D)
Day Trip west to Abilene, Kansas for a tour of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. The massive glass entry to the Library

Roman travertine trimmed with Breche d'Alep and Rouge Fleuri marble from France. (B,L,D)
Day Trip to Independence, Missouri, for a tour of the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum. The major issues and events of Harry
Truman’s Presidency are highlighted in a new 10,500 square foot exhibition, the centerpiece of the Library’s ambitious renovation. A new permanent
exhibition features the personal side of the life of Harry Truman and his family, primarily through the many letters exchanged between Harry and Bess
over the years. Upon returning to Kansas City you’ll tour the new $26 million World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial which contains a glass floor
raised several feet above a field of red poppies, representing the 9-million combat deaths of the war and a stunning recreation of No Man's Land, a 90
foot-long replica trench and a three-story screen depicting scenes from "the war to end all wars." (B,L)
A visit to the Hallmark Visitor Center where you will step inside the creative minds of Hallmarks artists and writers, view the 75 Emmy Awards won by

a real Hallmark card. This afternoon, tour the American Jazz Museum and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in the historic 18th and Vine
District. You’ll savor a delectable Kansas City barbeque dinner tonight. (B,D)

The tour continues on to Springfield, Illinois, home of the new Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, containing re-creations depicting the life of
Abraham Lincoln from his boyhood days in the log cabin through his journey to the White House, culminating with the Ford's Theater, a recreation of the
Presidential box, and the Funeral Train, a gallery displaying a map of the route of Lincoln's funeral train together with advertisements and
announcements inviting mourners to pay their last respects. (B,D)
En route to Little Rock, we'll also stop in Fulton, Missouri to visit the Churchill Museum, dedicated to the life and legacy of one of the greatest leaders
of the 20th Century. Located on the campus of Westminster College, the site of Churchill’s famous “Iron Curtain Speech”, this memorial is housed in
the beautiful and historic Church of St. Mary the Virgin of Aldermanbury. This 12th century London church was destroyed in the Great Fire of
London, and redesigned by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677. Nearly three centuries later, it was again destroyed by German incendiary bombs, and
marked for demolition until Wren’s graceful masterpiece was saved by a bold idea to move it to its present site. Sir Winston Churchill himself was
intrigued by the imaginative idea of a restored Wren church in America’s heartland. (B,L,D)
Travel to Little Rock, Arkansas, where you'll have a leisurely evening on your own. (B,L)
Today's highlight is a guided tour the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, home to the largest archival and museum holdings of any
in the Presidential Library system. Have a peak into the Oval Office, or imagine yourself discussing the fate of the country, as you sit in the chair of
Madeleine Albright, Bruce Babbit, or another member of the Presidential Cabinet. Following a visit to the Library’s Gift Shop and lunch, you’ll board the
motorcoach for your return Home. (B,L,D)

While serving in office, President Franklin D. Roosevelt inventoried
the vast quantities of papers and other materials he and his staff
had accumulated. Up to that time, many Presidential papers and
records had either been lost, destroyed, sold for profit, or ruined
by poor storage conditions.
President Roosevelt sought a viable solution. Advised by a
number of noted historians and scholars, he established a public
repository to preserve the evidence of the Presidency for future
Beginning a tradition that continues to this day, Roosevelt raised
funds from private resources for the new facility and then
designated its operation by the United States government through
the National Archives.
