“The history of the dog fight”
The Combat Air Museum has served as an educational institution and tourism destination for more than thirty years. It is one of a handful of major aviation museums in the United States located on an active air field. Visitors to our museum are regularly treated to flying activities of Air Force fighter aircraft and Army helicopter operations. With the second longest runway in the State of Kansas, large refueling tanker aircraft of the Air National Guard and army troop transports often fill the skies around the Museum. The Museum's youth classes offer students a unique opportunity to be immersed in the midst of a museum covering aviation history from the earliest days of flight to the present day.
A nice museum, the main hanger is well laid-out with lots of information on the aircraft. The second hanger was a little more cluttered but contains lots if interesting aircraft and artifacts.
The ability to walk through their Lockheed Warning Star was the highlight of the visit. If visiting this museum the Kanas National Guard Museum at the entrance to the airport is also worth a vist.
A great little hidden gem in Topeka Kansas. Well worth your time.
This was an awesome experience, even though my kids are 3 and 5 years old, they loved it too. Make sure you come early, as they close around 4pm. We got there at like 3:30pm. But were able to still get a of pictures, and got to see everything briefly. My favorite parts where the F14 Tomcat, and the currently being restored intelligence plane with a giant radar dish on the bottom! Would totally go again, when the kids are older, and can appreciate it even more.
