“I had no idea…”

Those are the words we hear from every first-time visitor to the Cosmosphere. If you haven’t visited the Cosmosphere, prepare to be amazed and surprised at every turn. If you’ve spent time here before, then you know.

It begins when you walk into the Cosmosphere beneath the wings of the SR-71 Blackbird that spans the lobby. When you watch your grandchildren learn how to build a rocket in CosmoKids or watch a giant ball of cotton explode in Dr. Goddard’s Lab. When you stand beside the Apollo 13 Command Module Odyssey or crane your neck to see the top of the Gemini Titan Rocket.
