in Hutchinson, Kansas.

 

The Cosmosphere is a world-class space museum, often called the best of it’s
kind on the planet. The Apollo 13 command module was disassembled after the 
flight as part of the accident investigation. Once the investigation was complete,
parts of the spacecraft were sent to different museums. In the year 2000,  the Cosmosphere brought all the parts together and restored Odyssey to its post- 
flight condition. It is now on permanent display at the museum.
