Atchison, KS

Amelia Earhart's birthplace is about 40 minutes from Kansas City.  Most people learn about Amelia in grade school; there is so much more to know about Amelia Earhart than just from a textbook!  What Amelia accomplished in 39 years is astonishing. She was so much more than an aviator.  She was a photographer, a wife, a stepmom, a sister, a daughter, a friend, an airline owner, a clothes designer, a college advisor, and an author - and that isn't all! 

The 1840s home that houses this wonderful museum grew from a one-room cabin to the three-floor home you see today from 1861 to 1872.  Amelia was born here in 1897 and lived here from the age of three until she was twelve.

Come explore our exhibit full of dreams of the sky and wishes come true. Be inspired and daydream in these beautiful rooms just as Amelia had done. We hope that you will join us on a guided tour so that we can tell you about all the different items and historical significance to enlighten your visit and get the most out of your journey here. We encourage you to be curious and ask questions! 

Come and walk back in time and be inspired
