The Yesterday's Museum in Topeka, Kansas shares a neat old stone building with Henry's Grill and Historic Harley-Davidson. The unusual private museum is devoted to motorcycles. It was largely ignored by the owners for several years, but was seeing some improvements when we toured the museum in 2013. Work was being done on the small free museum while we were there.

The displays can be viewed during regular dealership hours. The motorcycles and displays change periodically, but there are typically about 35 vintage motorcycles,  photographs, tools & collectibles displayed in the crowded rooms and hallways of the lower floor.

The building was constructed in 1935 to house the Shawnee County Maintenance Department. It was later the home of Willie C's Restaurant, but in 2000 it was remodeled and the motorcycle dealership, museum and Henry's Grill moved in.

The Evel Knievel Museum is a 2 level museum in the same building, dedicated to Robert Craig Knievel. That museum is much larger and has a $15 admission and takes much longer to tour.

Henry's Grill is open only from 11 AM - 2 PM Tuesday to Friday and 8 AM - 2 PM on Saturday. It serves a limited BBQ menu as well as breakfast on Saturday.
