The Combat Air Museum has served as an educational institution and tourism destination for close to forty 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 longest runway in the State of Kansas, large refueling tanker aircraft of the Kansas Air National Guard and army troop transports often fill the skies around the Museum. The Museum's "Young Aviators" 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.

Located at the Topeka Regional Airport on Forbes Field in Topeka, Kansas, the Combat Air Museum is a non-profit institution dedicated to the creation of facilities and resources for the education of the local and regional communities through the collection, preservation, conservation and exhibition of aircraft, information, artifacts, technology and art associated with the military aviation history of the United States of America.

On exhibit at the Museum:

  • 41 aircraft ranging from the earliest aviation period to the present day
  • Largest collection of WWI replica aircraft in the Mid-West
  • Historic aircraft engines of many sizes and types, including a rare Whittle Gas Turbine Engine
  • An extensive display of artifacts and dioramas and a growing gallery of military aviation art

Becoming a member in the Combat Air Museum is important to our continuing ability to preserve and interpret the history of aviation. Members receive unlimited free admission, a bi-monthly newsletter (Plane Talk), discounts on gift shop merchandise, invitation to our social events, including bi-monthly meetings with speakers on a wide range of interesting subjects and, above all, a unique exposure to aviation history. The Museum has become a popular destination for tourists to northeast Kansas and membership in CAM can help support this facility to continue as a valuable contributor to the quality of life in the region.
