Fun things to do in topeka

They say the best things in life are free, and luckily for budget friendly families visiting Topeka, this fun city has a number of GREAT free things for kids!

The Museum of the Kansas National Guard has indoor and outdoor exhibits, Yesterdays Motorcycle Museum has super cool classic bikes for those kids who love mechanics and engines, the Mulvane Art Museum & ArtLab is a fun hands-on experience for creative kids of all ages, and they can take a step back in time at the Old Prairie Town at Ward Meade Historic Site!

Phew! (And we haven’t even mentioned everything!)

Of course, Topeka has a TON of other kids fun to be had! Little kids will love the indoor play of places like Going Bonkers, animals lovers can spend the day at Topeka Zoo…and there are thrills for the whole family with adventures like the racing thrills at Heartland Park Topeka and TimberRidge Adventure Center (fancy some archery and canoes - we do!)

Topeka has history, outdoors, sunshine…and kids FUN! A completely family-friendly city!
