Named the #1 science center in the nation (Parents Magazine) and one of the nation's Top 12 Childrens Museums (Forbes), COSI (Center of Science and Industry) is a great attraction located in downtown Columbus -- just a short drive from Dublin. Best of all -- COSI offers fun for all ages!

Set in 320,000 square feet, the three floors offer fascinating hands-on exhibits, live shows, an extreme screen theater, outdoor courtyard, gift shop and the Atomic cafe. Scientific amazement and adventures abound where you can launch a rocket in Space, create a wave in Ocean, lift a car in the Big Science Park, watch food decompose in Life, ride a highwire unicycle over the atrium, crack a code in Adventure, travel back in time in Progress, or take apart a motor in Gadgets.

COSI is currently featuring MacGillicray Freeman's National Parks Adventure 3D narrated by Robert Redford in the extreme screen theater. 

Young scientists have their own designated area in KidSpace where infants, toddlers and preschoolers can explore and parents have amenities like lounges and changing rooms.

Did you know COSI can also host your private event? The prime riverfront setting of downtown Columbus, magnificent architecture and a mission to inspire makes COSI a venue with originality and value. Choose from world-class exhibit area, theaters or outdoor plazas. The largest space can hold 550 guests for a banquet.
