Had an awesome time looking at the bikes and seeing all the loop videos about Evel. Seeing all the throwback toys and the 4D motorcycle jump were the best

What a fabulous display. Folks were friendly and informative. Only issue was the temperature in the museum, very hot. Not sure if a-c was having issue. Highly recommend if you're in town. Give yourself at least 2 hours.
The Evel Knievel Museum Topeka, Kansas: When growing up Evel Knievel was my hero, an unstoppable Superman that never gave up and never backed down from a challenge. Every time he had an event on TV I was glued to it, wondering if he would make it or crash in some spectacular fashion. What I didn't know about this amazing man was how wonderfully clever a self promoter he was! Going through the museum you travel through his life all the way from his troubled and wild childhood to his sad and unfortunate death at a much to young age for a superhero. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 69. Evel Knievel is in the Guinness Book of World Records for breaking the most bones....., 433!!! Also on display was "Big Red", the truck that was used to move all his equipment and ramps. It was found rotting away in Florida for 30 years and brought back to it's former glory after an 18 month and $300,000 dollar restoration. This was a custom made, one of a kind truck built by Mack Trucks. The two story display is the largest collection of Evel Knievel memorabilia in the world. It's housed in a Harley Davidson store that also has a nice display of bikes through the ages.
Was working in Topeka KS and heard about the museum. I waited to the end of my project to go. Was completely worth it!!! Being an X Gen, Evel Knievel was mine and others hero. This museum is awesome. A must see!!
Unbelievable...I turned into an 8 year old the entire 2 house there. Brought back wonderful memories. As a second grader two of my friends bought me the EK action motorcycle jumper. I bought another one from the gift shop. Kevin was great. Will stop by again if I have the opportunity. I'm from Ohio and remember his jump at Kings Island.
Awesome brought back a lot of memories. Highly recommend going to see this collection. The virtual jump is great as well. Plan on spending a couple of hours. Staff is amazing.
