Attraction details
Owner description: Known as "COSI," this enormously popular attraction offers all sorts of hands-on exhibits, from conducting your own water experiments to creating a newscast to watching yourself age. Three movie theaters provide enough entertainment variety for the whole family.

COSI is a wonderful place to destination for families with children of around 3 and older. The interactive, hands-on exhibits pull the children (and adults) into learning without them even realizing it. When going, if you want to have any chance of exploring most of the exhibits plan on being their a full day.

Liked: The exhibits are excellent and offer a wide range of enjoyment for toddlers and on up. Great place to see IMAX 3D educational movies. On the edge of downtown and within walking distance of the Columbus Commons and Bicentennial Park (River walk).

Disliked: Hardly any reason to join as the exhibits don't change very often.

COSI is a good way to spend a day for individuals and families. With the addition of a new planitarium its a hit. Kids can take in a holiday themed star show or adults can just gaze at the stars. Other activities are sure to please everyone. Interesting facts and hands on exhibits related to science or the the science behind all things, however you like to see it. A good way to spend the day and not be stuck in your home bored on a cold day.

This is an awesome place for families to learn together. It is perfect in the winter for smaller kids. They have a seperate play area in which the can use their muscles and play with water tables. They also have classes that you can pay for and enroll kids in. Food prices like most places like this are a little higher than normal, but at least it is available. Consider a membership if you live near so you won't feel like you have to do it all in one day.
