I'm in charge of senior bus groups for my employer. Took my group to Hutchinson, KS on April 16 and 17, 2014. One of our activities was visiting the Cosmosphere. What a gem! This is a fabulous museum; one of the best my group has ever been to. The tour guides for my group were excellent - friendly and knowledgeable.... More

I have been a space-a-holic since the third grade and the Cosmosphere did not disappoint. I only wish I had had more time to read everything in each display. the shows were well conceived and the presentations thoroughly captivating. Even the two year old sat through the science demo. Money and time well spent! It also gave us the discount... More

If you are looking for something to do in central Kansas, the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center is the place to go. It is fascinating to look through and take time to read about space. You can spend hours here just looking at the exhibits, and take in and I-Max film while there. It is the best collection of space... More

If you are in the area don't miss this one. The Apollo 13 Module is here and so much more! Films are top notch on the remodeled digital iMax theater

This is not to be missed attraction. You can sped hours here just exploring and viewing the space artifacts. The most outstanding aspect of visiting here is the shear number of actually flown hardware. Such as the Liberty Bell 7 that spent nearly fifty years sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic before being recovered. Or the actual Apollo 13... More

The Cosmosphere periodically changes the main attraction. The coolest part of the Cosmosphere? Definitely has been and always will be the SR-71 Blackbird. The size of that thing is ridiculous! And you must check out the ONLY photo they have of them putting the plane in! It's so cool!! Definitely a fun place for a family, although, I do believe... More

This is a great attraction for young and old. My now 10 year old grandson and I have made the trek each of the last 4 years. The cost is very reasonable and we have yet to experience any kind of crowd. You can take as much time as you like with each exhibit. I recommend the day pass if... More

Hadn't ever heard of this place but an online search while passing through Hutchinson on a road trip mentioned it. Even though I thought it couldn't be any good... come on, in Kansas?!.... my husband and I were blown away. Don't miss this incredible huge collection tracing spacecraft development. We are still talking a day later about the documentation and... More
