  • It was actually a really cool Museum. It's not a huge Museum, but if you stop and read all the exhibits and watch the movies it'll probably take you about two hours to go through. When you get to the second floor there's two or three interactive computer screens on the wall, they have some really cool information that you can explore. Make sure you keep some of your mind at attention when you get up there. And ride the 3D cycle Adventure. There was cool
  • The staff here were exceptionally friendly. The exhibits were visually interesting with the perfect balance of information to display. There were several interactive exhibits that brought the history to life upstairs. I will definitely be going back to finish viewing all of the things there.
  • Unbelievably awesome..... I wish I could live in Big Red....the jump was awesome and only $5. If you don't go your missing out, so grateful to have this near KC. All employees are crazy nice, gift shop lady is sweet as pie. Can't wait to go back.
  • Great place. I enjoyed it from the moment I walked in and was greeted by the friendly lady at the front desk. The exhibits are like taking a trip down memory lane. Lots of great memories of the various jumps that are documented there. It was also fun to see the collection of vintage Evel Knievel merchandise; I quickly spotted the wind-up stunt cycle and lunch box that I had in grade school. There are a handful of employees along the tour route that are eager to answer questions and point out features of the interactive displays. This museum is an asset to the city of Topeka. If you were a fan of Evel Knievel when you were young you owe it to yourself to pay this place a visit.
  • Such a great little museum! Amazing exhibits with all kinds to of memorabilia, costumes, photos, videos, interactive parts and a virtual reality jump. The volunteers are also extremely nice, and everything is spotless and we'll organized.
