HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KSNW) — The Cosmosphere won a 2021 Travelers’ Choice Award from Tripadvisor for being in the top 10% of attractions worldwide.

“We are honored to be a Tripadvisor top 10% attraction worldwide,” said Jim Remar, President and Chief Executive Officer at the Cosmosphere. “The designation is a direct reflection of our excellent staff, customer service and programming. While the past year has been a challenge, our staff rose to meet that challenge and continued to provide a quality experience to our visitors.”
