  • There are so many different pieces of history in this Museum as well as lessons that you just don't see in classes anymore!  more »
  • Visited this free museum while traveling via Topeka. On display they have Army CH-54, OH-6A Silver Eagles and USAF EB-57 Canberra among other on display. Worth a while to make a stop to check it out.  more »

  • I wasn't sure what to expect. Our Boy Scout Troop toured the state capital and dropped in here to check it out. I was really really surprised by how much military gear and equipment they have out for the public to experience. Very good time. Wish we stayed longer.
  • Another must see on the trip. What an informative trip through the museum. I loved the history and all the personal items on display. Make sure and allow plenty of time.. The "Mash unit" display was the topping on the cake.
  • Great staff. Very hospitable. I assisted with taking 57 VCIS SHOW students up to the museum and we all enjoyed learning about the history of the Minutemen and Kansas National Guard. A sincere thank you to all the soldiers and veterans who helped make this happen for these great kids. SHOW stands for Students Helping Out Warriors and is a very nice program to get children involved with helping, learning, giving, and supporting our troops.
  • Pretty darned cool. Lots of unique niche historical items. Civil War through GWOT.
  • A must see. Great staff, tons of history, a little known gem of Topeka.
