The Cosmosphere International SciEd Center and Space Museum in Hutchinson has the 2nd largest collection of US space memorabilia anywhere and the largest collection of Russian space memorabilia outside the former Soviet Union. These are the experts that the other space museums come to for many of their exhibits' restoration.

Spacecraft and aircraft on exhibit at the Kansas Cosmosphere include Apollo 13, a Blackbird SR-71 spy plane, a flown Vostok spacecraft, a Sputnik, space suits & tools, items that have been on the moon. The Cosmosphere is where Liberty Bell, the Mercury 7 capsule that was recovered from the bottom of the ocean was restored.

Other attractions at the Kansas Cosmosphere include a digital dome theater, planetarium, Science lab show, food court, adult & youth space camps and new Mollett Early Spaceflight Gallery.

The Cosmosphere recomends a minimum of 4 hours for a visit, but even if you spend only a few hours at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, it is an entertainment bargain. Many visitors spend all day or even a weekend.
