The Cosmosphere International Science Education Center & Space Museum is a Smithsonian-affiliated museum in Hutchinson, KS. Featuring the largest combined collection of U.S. and Russian space artifacts in the world, this unique collection allows the Cosmosphere to tell the story of the Space Race better than any other museum.
Visitors to the Cosmosphere can see rocket science brought to life with a bang in Dr. Goddard’s Lab; see documentaries daily and recently-released feature films on weekends in the Carey Digital Dome Theater and gain new insight into the universe in the Cosmosphere’s state-of-the-art Planetarium. Every third Saturday, the Cosmosphere offers Space Out Saturday, a free, family-friendly event with hands-on science demonstrations, special kid-friendly tours of the museum and more.
Cosmosphere Aerospace summer camps and year-round STEM education opportunities meet Next Generation Science and Common Core curriculum standards, foster teamwork, leadership and critical thinking skills and introduce students to the power of wondering—asking the critical questions that lead to discovery.
