This museum was AMAZING! The bikes, the truck, the rocket, the quotes, the pictures, the videos, the visuals on broken bones, the list of jumps.... AMAZING! Well done Harley Davidson of Topeka! Well done! I would go again. Well worth the money!

If you are a Evel and motorcycle fan you will love rhis place. If not it’s an ok place. Our group consisted of a mixture of fans and non fans. I grew up following Evel through the years and I’m impressed with the detail and size of the collection.

We read in the paper about this museum. We remembered Evel Knievel from the seventies and were very impressed . They did an outstanding job of telling the history of Evel with displays, pictures ,etc. The people working there had lots of great stories to tell and did a good job of showing us around.
If you are in the area don't miss this museum!

This was a great experience and I learned a lot about Evel that I didn't know. From his childhood all the way through his retirement from the daredevil profession. Lots of motorcycles, pictures, video's and memorabilia. As a rider I was impressed with everything there. Whether you ride or not this is one place you have to visit.

The museum is well planned out, taking you from his life as a child to his death. Really nice displays and monitors with many of his jumps. The 'Big Red" restoration display and video was fantastic!! Liked about it except I buy magnets and display on my magnet board at home of the many places I've been in U.S. and abroad. Their magnets are $10 and they only have one with the museum on it! I don't mind paying for things that I feel are worthy but I don't like being gouged. Your only other choice is to buy a sticker for $3. At any rate this is my only gripe about the place. Maybe petty to you but to me its just not right.
