COSI, Columbus, Ohio’s dynamic Center of Science and Industry, inspires the scientists, dreamers, and innovators of tomorrow. Opened in 1964 in downtown Columbus, COSI moved in 1999 to a new 320,000-square-foot home, creating one of the largest modern-built science centers in the United States.
“COSI provides an exciting and informative atmosphere for those of all ages to discover more about our environment, our accomplishments, our heritage, and ourselves. We motivate a desire toward a better understanding of science, industry, health, and history. COSI is for the enrichment of the individual and for a more rewarding life on our planet, Earth.”
