The pipe broke early Friday and dumped water as deep as 8 to 12 inches in some spots.
The Hutchinson News reported on its web site that the water streamed down a service tunnel to a storage area in the space museum.
The museum's German Gallery had nearly a foot of standing water. Other parts had 1 to 3 inches.
