Holley Museum of Military History
The Holley Museum of Military History in Topeka, Kansas is a free museum housed in the Ramada Inn. The Holley Museum fills five small galleries and features dioramas, photographs, many models of air craft & vehicles and a few artifacts. Most of the museum is devoted to World War II, but there are items from as early as the Battle of Trafalgar and as late as the War for Iraqi Freedom in 2003.
The museum's web site says that a complete audio tour is available, but there was no one present when these photos were taken and no indication of an audio guide being available. Someone with the right interests might spend a couple of hours in the Holley Museum, but unless being given a guided tour, I think most visitors would be satisfied with less than 30 minutes.
The museum displays the collection of the late Jerry Holley, a broadcaster who was very active in the Topeka community. The Museum contains his personal collection of over four thousand items.
