  • This place is full of interesting old fighter planes. You can get right up close to some of the iconic 60's and 70's jets. Great place to spend a couple of hours. Highly recommended.

  • This place is a big surprise for a town the size of Topeka KS. I have been to many air museums around the country and this place has some of the best displays I have seen, especially in a small market...  more »

  • Great little muesem. Always a treat come see. The volunteers are great. Very warm and friendly place.
  • One of the best aircraft and military museums in the midwest. This museums boasts many aircraft from every era and does a wonderful job displaying exhibits, memorabilia and aircraft. The number of aircraft at the Combat Air Museum in very impressive considering the location and is on par with many of the museums I've visited on the west coast. I have visited this museum many times and will continue to do so as there are often new things added and new aspects to discover. Take note that this museum is located near an active airport and is inside WW2 style aircraft hangars which hearken back to the days of golden aviation and gives you the feel of what it was like back then. Great place to visit!
  • This museum is not like one you have experienced before. This museum allows you to get right up to the actual aircraft and into some of them. If you are a fan of aircraft, this museum is a must. There is no AC however, so a summer tour might be a bit uncomfortable. The staff was more than helpful and kind. I would highly, highly recommend making a trip up to Topeka to take a look at this museum. It's really impressive what they have accomplished with a staff of volunteers.
  • The museum has a couple buildings and a wide variety of combat aircraft. You can even go inside the EC-121. If you like airplanes, this is a must.
