Visited this free museum while traveling via Topeka. On display they have Army CH-54, OH-6A Silver Eagles and USAF EB-57 Canberra among other on display. Worth a while to make a stop to check it out.

For the military history buffs, this is the place to stop. It had many artifacts stemming from Civil War to present day conflicts. We really enjoyed the MASH reproduction of the set.
