TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – The Topeka Evel Knievel Museum has formally announced its move to Las Vegas.

Officials with the Evel Knievel Museum said under the guidance of Las Vegas real estate developer JDapper, Dapper Companies has commenced construction on the 32,000-square-foot Mission Linen building situated at 1001 South 1st Street in the Arts District of Downtown Las Vegas.

The Evel Knievel Museum officials indicated the site is slated to become the future residence of The Evel Knievel Museum, set to feature an impressive array of authentic artifacts alongside immersive interactive exhibits, providing visitors with the opportunity to step into Evel’s daring world and experience his adventures firsthand.

“I do have mixed feelings about the museum leaving Topeka. This is our hometown and we have been so proud to have it reside in Topeka for the past seven years,” said museum co-founder, Mike Patterson. “We have welcomed guests from over 80 different countries and every U.S. state many times over. The museum has been a real economic win for the Topeka community with all those visitors, and we are very proud of that. Our team is excited about this move as we will oversee design of the new Las Vegas museum, and we will continue to operate the attraction from Topeka.”

The Topeka Evel Knievel Museum plans to stay open through Saturday, November 2, 2024.
