  • Nice gazebo and trail. MUSEUM is awesome inside but looks hidden from outside and can you a fresh coat of paint
  • A very well put together museum. Lots of information you can absorb and great dioramas/displays. We ran out of time on our visit, but we enjoy reading everything so that can take awhile. If you plan on visiting give yourself atleast 2 hours, and if you're like us plan on 3.5hrs.
  • A good museum at a reasonable rate. I would highly suggest taking walks on the walking trails there as well. Taking the walks in the spring time when everything is in bloom and really nice.
  • Home to the sunflower state games gravel race!! Great area trail to walk on and the attractions inside are fun to see.
  • A must visit if you're in Topeka. Extensive collection of artifacts and displays from many different eras of Kansas history. If you like museums you'll like this place!
