I live in Columbus and this is one of my favorite places. They have permanent and rotating exhibits. I was last here for the Titanic artifact exhibit. These were real artifacts brought up from the ocean floor. Pretty cool! It's great for kids, but adults usually learn something too.

This is a great place to learn about all branches of science - especially archeology and physics. There are many interactive exhibits that appeal to a wide range of interests.

Cafeteria is on premises but you... More

COSI is a Science Museum that is interesting. I think the younger children 6 months-4 years and the older ones 10 years and up really enjoy it. The ages in between aren't that interested. It's either way too young in an area or completely over their head in other spots. It's just hard to really engage when there's not enough... More
