  • 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.
  • Excellent museum highlighting flight and space artifacts from all over the world. They offer 3 different theatres including a rocketry lab, a planetarium, and a large dome theater to supplement the experience of the artifacts. It is a must see museum!!
  • Always love coming here, always learn something new. Loved the simulator. Really enjoyed the museum, and we took the time to do a couple of Imax shows. Also for the first time ate in the restaurant. The food was hot and super tasty, very surprised by the high quality of it. Friendly staff.
  • Went during the week. It was quiet and I could take my time. So many neat artifacts. It felt like it went on forever. Great way to spend a few hours.
