The 105,000-square-foot, Smithsonian-affiliated museum, which was voted one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas in 2008, boasts the second-largest collection of space artifacts in the United States (behind only the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.). An all-day mission pass gets you access to all the museum’s treasures: the Carey IMAX Dome Theater, Justice Planetarium, Dr. Goddard’s Lab, and the Hall of Space Museum. Start by strolling through the Hall of Space, where notable space souvenirs such as the command module from Apollo 13 and the Liberty Bell 7 Mercury capsule chronicle mankind's courtship with the cosmos. Then explore Dr. Goddard’s Lab, a replica of the 1930s laboratory where Dr. Robert Goddard pioneered modern rocketry. Explosive reenactments of the doctor's attempts to find the right rocket fuel, figure out how to circumvent gravity, and lick his elbows are performed daily to delight children and their copilots.

With its grand reopening in 2005, the Louise C. Murdock Theatre married the technological trappings of a modern cinema to its historic, 80-year-old interior. The theater’s original frescoes and iridescent, art-deco chandelier greet guests as they make their way toward a single 25'x16' screen. Framed by lush red curtains, the digital canvas displays images from a digital projector with high-definition capabilities, accompanied by the boisterous booms of Dolby surround sound. The theater screens a diverse calendar of cinematic fare, including limited-release arthouse films and classic foreign cinema augmented by popcorn and other epicurean goodies from the full concession stand stocked with snacks, alcohol, and more. The Murdock also proudly projects simulcast and prerecorded productions through partnerships with The Metropolitan Opera and the National Theatre, transporting international stage performances to the Murdock without the hassle of getting sandbags through customs.

With three beach volleyball courts on the outdoor sand bar, people don?t just watch sports at Jerseys Grill and Bar, they also play them. Of course, those in the mood for watching can sidle up to the inside bar, where a squad of TVs and projectors displays live sporting events. There, beers pour from taps and servers deliver flatbread pizzas, sandwiches, and chicken dishes. The chefs flex their creativity with the menu's handful of half-pound Black Angus burgers, as they roll one patty in black peppercorn, dip another in a teriyaki glaze, and top a third with a fried egg. While eating, guests can check out the football helmets that line shelves above the windows and the framed jerseys that bedeck the walls. The bar has a designated space for kids to expend their energy in the game room, and another space for DJs, live bands, and the local theater troupe?s re-enactment of Space Jam.
