Make the drive to Atchison for Amelia

Beautiful family home with donated items to reflect the time period. Lots of pictures of Amelia. Self guided tour but docent on site to answer questions.

Well maintained home of Ms Earhart's grandparents. Self-guided tour, so not a lot of information about her life in that home. Lots of pictures, a few items that actually belonged to her. I have been to better facilities of this type where you come away full of history from enthusiastic docents. If you are passing through and were intrigued by... More

Finally had the chance to take the Amelia Earhart tour. What a beautiful home with a multitude of great pictures and historical information. Well taken care of and minimal tour fee.

This museum was anything but dull. It had a live-in feel so that you felt like you were in a home rather than a museum. It is a great place for young and old to visit!

Well off the beaten path this museum is worth it. They have many personal artifacts of Amelia's and they offer an interesting insight into her life. I learned so much more about her from my visit.

Museum gives you the opportunity to tour the house of Amelia's grandparents where she was born and then lived there until she was about 12. Museum covers a lot of her history and accomplishments. If you want more detail information on her life in Atchison, the museum at the old train depot (free) has a very good exhibit on that.

My wife and I visited during a recent day trip from White Cloud, to Troy, Atchison, and finally Leavenworth. At first, we balked at paying the $5 per person admission, but after walking the grounds and seeing how big the house actually was, we decided that $10 wouldn't put us in the poorhouse. Once inside, we were glad we did,... More

Amelia Earhart was born in her grandparents' home, and this is the place. If you have visited other historic homes this one will feel familiar. The Ninety-Nines, Inc, an organization of women pilots, has owned the property since 1984 and considering that the home was not necessarily maintained throughout the years with an eye toward becoming an historic site someday,...

If your a fan of Amelia Earhart this is a cool place to get a glimpse of her early life. It's also a neat look back at 1900's America.
