Topeka Evel Knievel Museum to Show Daredevil’s Possessions

Topeka officials say a museum dedicated to daredevil Evel Knievel will open in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Evel Knievel museum will be located at the Topeka Harley Davidson and will house the largest collection of Knievel’s possessions. City officials said in an announcement Friday that the Knievel museum will include a dozen jackets, six bikes, a Mack truck and pinball machines.

Knievel is known for several stunts, including jumping the fountains at Caesar’s Palace and the Snake River Canyon.

Knievel died at age 69 in 2007 in Clearwater, Florida.
