Evel Hero USA TodayEvel Hero USA Today

RED BLOOD. WHITE SUIT. AND BLUE SKY.

For daredevils and dreamers of all ages, come rediscover the spectacle of the death-defying Evel Knievel show, now open and flying sky-high in Topeka, Kansas. Witness the incredible collection of the physics-defying bikes that launched the legend. See his iconic 1974 Mack Truck & Trailer "Big Red." Examine the star-spangled helmets (battered, and beaten and beautiful) that undoubtedly saved Evel’s uninsurable life more than once. Listen to the eye-widening, imagination-sparking, and the doesn’t-seem-possible stories that defined an American icon.

Met him in Daytona in 2004.

I meet him Evel Knievel just before he died .

Randy Heitman

In the 70’s the smell in Topeka was provided by the DuPont plant. Not a good thing to relive. Lol

I wonder if this was before the Cow Palace brawl with the Hells Angels member?

The Evel Knievel Museum

🧐Did you know the Evel Knievel Museum is attached to Historic Harley-Davidson of Topeka? 🍴Located inside is Henry's BBQ Grill, serving excellent BBQ lunches! A hidden jewel that surprises everyone is our free Vintage Bike Museum called Yesterday’s. 😲

We also have Touch of Class Hair Studio and Integrity Insurance Agency located on the lower level of the building. You could spend a whole afternoon at the Evel Knievel Museum! 🤗

YOU CAN'T LOOK AWAY. AND HE WOULDN'T WANT YOU TO.

It doesn’t matter how many times you watch him jump, it’s always a hair-raising experience. And nothing showed his preference for showmanship over sanity like his attempt at Caesars Palace. That’s the fearless spirit we’ve rekindled for a whole new generation with the Evel Knievel Thrill Show Museum.
