TOPEKA, Kan. (KAKE) - A museum dedicated to famous motorcycle stunt performer Evel Knievel is heading west later this year.

The Evel Knievel Museum, which has been located in Topeka since its founding in 2017, will move to Las Vegas after the final day of business, according to museum co-founder Matt Patterson. A new museum is already under construction in Nevada.

The move comes after months of speculation for the future of the museum's property, which it shares with a Harley-Davidson store. KSNT-TV reported in December 2023 that the property at SW 21st Street and Topeka Boulevard was sold to Shawnee County.

The museum will remain open in Topeka until November 2. contributed to this report.
