  • The Cosmosphere is in my opinion the best museum in Hutchinson hands down(maybe in all of Kansas). It's a must see attraction if you're in town. Where do I start?? For me, I love, love, love the SR-71...  more »
  • I hadn’t been to the Cosmosphere since I was a child and I forgot just how much there is to look at and learn. Most of the staff was really nice. Will definitely go back again when I have at least 4 h...  more »
  • Great space museum with a lot of real artifacts from NASA and other international space agencies. Exhibits are well done. My 7 and 10 years old kids were very interested. We were there for a scout trip, and the educational program prepared for them was amazing. It is a very nice museum not only by Kansas standards but also at the national level. There is a lot to see and do there.
  • What an amazing space museum! One of a kind artifacts from WWII through the Space Shuttle. Also the most unique static display of an SR-71 that I've ever seen. Well worth the effort to get to, and not to be missed.
