This museum was a free museum and it surprised me what was inside. I believe they covered from the Civil War all the way up to Afghanistan with displays and artifacts. If you are a fan of the TV show MASH, this place is a must visit for they have a full scale model of the tent known as the... More

This museum has so much history packed inside the small building and also has a great display of vehicles and aircraft outside. A must see museum if you are in Topeka.

There are simply too many items in this place to really see everything. They have a HUGE collection of some of the best diorama's I've seen in a long time. Too fully appreciate this place, plan on spending a couple hours to be able to look over everything.

I have been here just as many times as I have been to The Combat Air Museum. I always like going through the display cases and seeing the ordnance and saying "I have one of those in my war room." Very informative and always enjoy visiting the machinery outside as well.

If you have any interest in anything military, this is a worthwhile stop. The museum contains lots of military historical items like uniforms, jeeps, weapons, photographs and information about the items on display. I saw items from the Civil War right up through recent times. A real unexpected gem is a replica of a set from MASH. The officers' tent... More

We arrived late so we were not able to see much on the inside. We did get to see a Mash TV set. That was fun. We mainly saw the outside which consisted of several jeeps, tanks and airplanes but my favorite was the sky crane. This helicopter was used during Viet Nam a lot and could deliver an entire... More
