Evel Knievel Museum & Historic Harley Davidson of Topeka
Experience all the high flying stunts of Evel Knievel while keeping both feet placed firmly on the ground. The Evel Knievel Museum, located inside the Historic Harley Davidson of Topeka, offers the world's largest collection of Knievel's memorabilia and the stunt performer's personal possessions which include performance leathers, stunt bikes and his signature Mack Truck, "Big Red." The museum also boasts a 4-D virtual reality jump (featured above) and a small movie theater which plays snippets from Evel's infamous movie career. It will take an hour alone to get through the museum. Shop the Harley store, visit the bike shop and enjoy a first-class meal at the Black Dog Bar B Que inside Harley Davidson.
The Pennant is the perfect place to kill a few hours of your time (and have fun while doing it!). Enjoy one of their signature burgers, either of the veggie or beef variety, and a sinfully delicious specialty shake while bowling a strike or getting the high score in their vintage arcade. The two-story restaurant also offers two fully stocked bars (ask them about their alcoholic shakes!).
