  • Visited the museum with my son. We enjoyed the aircrafts and getting up close to some of the cockpits. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit. We came during a hot summer....  more »

  • The Combat Air museum in Topeka Kansas it is a great way to spend an hour checking out the history of flight and the armed forces of multiple nations, going all the way back to world war one. It’s a very cheap day out and tickets cost only six dollars per person over 18, which is very reasonable for a museum these days. There are around 40 different planes and helicopters to see and you’re allowed to walk inside a couple of them to check them out. Set inside two aircraft hangers, if you’re a fan of aviation at all I highly recommend you visit this museum. As a note, but come at a museum is also near the Kansas national guard museum which has an open a display with a whole bunch of helicopters and ground support vehicles. Make sure you take the time to check those out too.
  • I am retired Air Traffic Controller and served as an Air Intercept controller in the Navy. This museum is a hidden gem. Very nice collection of aircraft, memorabilia and aviation art in the upper level. Some of the airplanes were more restored than others but even the most incomplete displays were awesome. The main hanger has mostly restored aircraft and a second hanger has works in progress. The Lockheed Constellation Warning Star out back is also a must see. You can also tour the inside of this aircraft. There is also a flight simulator if you are so inclined. The gift store has a nice collection of military aviation patches, hat pins, books and scale aircraft. There are guides to help or feel free to tour on your own. Joe, who was a Korean War Veteran showed me around and was a joy to visit with. Overall glad I stopped in.
