  • Powerful and well done exhibits. Lots to learn here about events leading up to the US Supreme Court decision. Also beautiful mural by students "katy-korner" from the building. Strongly recommended.

  • This place was such a great surprise on our road trip. We dropped in unexpectedly and we’re so glad we did. It was such an informative, moving experience. If you have a chance to visit, don’t miss seeing such an important piece of American history. Ranger Preston W. was an exceptionally passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated steward of the site, which made the visit a richer experience. A can’t miss stop on any road trip!
  • Free to visit. Enjoyed the interactive experiences. Was able to speak to a ranger who explained the importance of the way the Kindergarten room was set up and the education system in Topeka. The exhibit had current/recent information as well. Sometimes when learning about history, we think it all happened so far in the past, but there are events that continue to take place today that then become a part of history. I enjoyed learning about different people from various ethnicities and backgrounds and their contributions to civil rights. As an afterthought, I don't recall seeing too much information about the actual Brown v Board of Education case. There were a number of books and other gifts in the gift shop. Don't forget to get your park passport stamped!
  • An incredible experience. The young man who who was giving information was very knowledgeable and personable. It's not a huge museum so even if you're just traveling through it's a great stop. As a teacher would also highly recommend taking students there.
  • Great historical site packed with important information and stories! Like most of the National Parks, the staff were friendly and enthusiastic and happy to answer questions help one get the most out of their visit. It's very information dense, so I would would give yourself at least 4-5 hours to view and reflect on all of the exhibits if it's your first time visiting.
  • A 5 minute detour from downtown. Place is immaculate and free. Great displays and info especially for those with interest in civil rights or the law. Only need to schedule about 30 mins to an hour and you'll have plenty of time. Definitely worth the quick detour from downtown.
