Holley Museum models

Looking for an indoor attraction for the whole family?

Visit the Holley Museum of Military History, located within the Ramada Topeka, Downtown Hotel & Convention Center. This free education gallery illustrates multiple phases of U.S. military service through photographs, reproduced artifacts and models, all of which belonged to museum founder Jerry Holley. Holley started his collection out of his basement, constructing models and dioramas as an artistic outlet – each piece depicting a story from modern U.S. military history.


Displays range from the Battle of the Bulge, the Tuskegee Airmen and various battle ships and aircrafts. While the museum is self-guided, knowledgeable volunteers are onsite to answer questions.
