TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — 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 yesterday (FRI) that the museum will include a dozen jackets, six bikes, a Mack truck and pinball machines. The Evel Knievel Museum at Historic Harley-Davidson is expected to open by next summer. 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.
