Center of Science and Industry#7 in Best Things To Do in Columbus, OH
This museum is geared toward kids, but adults don't seem bored by its interactive exhibits either. From a science park and computer simulators to the energy explorers interactive laboratory and live science shows, the Center of Science and Industry (or COSI) is jam-packed with interesting things to do and see. Museumgoers can ride in a space capsule, learn more about ocean exploration technology and "order" science exhibits to work on as a group (three particular traveler favorites). Meanwhile, the COSI Planetarium treats visitors to a presentation on the planets, stars and universe, while the National Geographic Giant Screen Theater shows films on the national parks, Africa's terrain and creatures, and more.
Travelers agree this is an enjoyable museum to visit with the kids, citing the interactive exhibits as informative and engaging. Some were disappointed with the high cost of admission though.
The Center of Science and Industry is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission costs $20 for adults and $15 for kids ages 2 to 12; additional fees apply for exhibits like the planetarium and National Geographic Giant Screen movie. Two-day admission passes are also available. You'll find the museum along the banks of the Scioto River in downtown Columbus. For more information, visit the website.
