Amazing collection of Evel Knievel memorabilia and archive film footage of his jumps along with his bikes. For motorcycle enthusiasts another museum is in near the Harley service department

This was a great experience. Well worth the price. Lots of great memerabilia items and videos. My kids enjoyed it and they didn't grow up watching Evel Knievel. For me it brought back lots of memories watching him do these daring stunts!

This museum is NOTHING SHORT OF SPECTACULAR. It is thoughtfully done, the collection of all things Evel Knievel is OFF THE CHARTS, and you can see clips of every jump, learn about all the successes, crashes, broken bones, and his childhood. It also has information about the folks that helped create this killer example of US pop culture. Interactive exhibits, a virtual jump, and tons of information. I about LOST MY MIND visiting this museum. If you are remotely interested in Evel Knievel or remember watching a jump as a child, you will LOVE this museum. I happen to totally LUCK OUT the day I visited. George Sedlak was there. He painted all of Evel's bikes and helmets!!! WHAAT??!! I got to chit chat with him, hear some cool stories AND go into Evel's office in his truck which is not an exhibit for the public! One of the founders, Mike Patterson was walking around so I had the opportunity to speak with him as well. Just FUN FUN FUN. If you are road tripping across the state of Kansas, take the time to visit this museum. It also has a café! So you can grab a bite before you leave.

The exhibits chronicle the life of Evel from boyhood. Motorcycles, the snake river canyon jump, lots of videos of his jumps and near the end, a list of his performances including safe landings and crashes. The restored tractor trailer is very well done. A good 90 min or more. $15 general admission felt a little expensive but I really enjoyed the museum.

Everyone remembers Evel. He's still the greatest daredevil of all times. His life's story is really something. This museum is very well done and has the greatest exhibits and videos of THE MAN. They have even found his Mack truck which has been totally restored to it's original beauty by some local folks. You have to see this place. It's great. Do you remember jumping your bicycle over the board ramps set up in the yard. About gave Mom a heart attack. Never missed an Evel event on TV. Still the greatest daredevil and will be for all times.
