This gorgeous home is well preserved and located in an interesting neighborhood overlooking the river. It is supported by a women's aviation group. The entrance fee is a bargain. The docents are lovely and knowledgeable. The museum offers an educational opportunity in aviation history and women's rights. Visitors see where Amelia Earhart was born and also her bedroom. I would... More

A stop at this old house on the banks of the river is well worth it. The docents were friendly and pleased to see people there. The house is well-preserved, stocked with both period artifacts and Amelia Earhart memorabilia. I had no idea that Amelia had a line of luggage and clothing and such, among other things.

A historical treasure chest full of Amelia Earhart memorabilia! A great reason, in and of itself, to visit the charming town of Atchiston, Kansas!

This museum was the home of Amelia Earhart's grandparents where she was born and raised. It has been beautifully restored and there are 2 floors of memorabilia to view

We came here for my daughter who adores Amelia after seeing her plane in DC. Beautiful house, great welcome, totally worth the fee to get in. Very informational. I would go there again. Amazing small town.

If you're a big Amelia fan probably worth the $6. Good historical information. This is where Amelia was born. The people manning the home are full of information about her life.

This is a pretty house on the Missouri River bluff and an excellent museum which tells Amelia's story in a personal, engaging way. I learned new, surprising things about her, including that she worked as a clothing and luggage designer for awhile and served in WW1 in the nursing field. You can almost still feel her presence in the house... More

I've been visiting the museum for about 13 years, usually during the Amelia Earhart Birthd Party that takes place during the month of July, on the third weekend in July, but I do stop in and visit with Lou Foudray, the curator and her daughter Jan, who is the other employee of the home. The home is chock full of... More
