Great place to visit to learn about the space race and how it was achieved, actual vehicles, equipment and a lot of history.

My grandson and I had a very interesting visit to Cosmosphere. He is interested is history, rockets and space (what 10 year old boy isn’t?) We found the Cosmosphere had so much information about the space race between the USSR and the United States that I had never known about. We spent 3 hours there before they closed, but should have allotted ourselves at least another hour. We didn’t get a chance to see any of the movies, but we did get to go into the planetarium for a fun show of our planets and constellations.

In our travels across this great country, we seem to find air and space museum along the way. Here is yet another one. The Cosmosphere was planned on this trip because they have a certain artifact in storage I was very interested in seeing, but couldn't due to Covid-19. But the museum was a great experience none the less. If you're like me, a big air and space fan, then this is another great place to stop. The building has multiple levels, so there are stairs and elevators to negotiate. But the facility is wheelchair friendly. I recommend you check out their website before going to see all that is available to see and do.

As someone who lived through the cold war and the space race that was a part of it, it was a great experience to relive those bygone days. There's lots to see here and lots to learn if you've never heard the story of Sputnik and rockets blowing up on launch pads and in the air. A great history lesson with lots of artifacts from the era on display.

My husband and I are huge Air and Space fans. This museum was such an experience in the Cold War and early space history. Of particular interest was the early rocket experiments in Nazi, Germany and the interesting parallels in the museum of the race to the moon between Russia and the US. We toured the entire museum as well as the planetarium show. This was about a 3 hour tour for us. It could definitely be longer.

We like to pride ourselves that our collection includes the largest combined collection of U.S. and Russian space artifacts in the world, thus allowing us to tell the story of the Space Race better than any other museum! Thanks for visiting and come back and see us soon!
