The unicycle on the tightrope, the ball that makes your hair stand up when you touch it, the spinning space tunnel that makes you feel like you're in 0 gravity... I can't choose my favorite part about this place. It's so fun, even as a grown up!

Really enjoy going to COSI. When I was a kid this really was the coolest place ever. It's floor after floor of hands on exhibits that seemingly never end. I remember leaving and always feeling like I had to come back right away.

COSI is badass, even as an adult. Tons of memories here as a kid on field trips. This is the perfect spot for families traveling into Columbus or any locals looking for something fun to do. It's about 20 bucks for admission but definitely worth it!

Adults or kid, either way you'll enjoy COSI. COSI is very hands-on, and is consistently ranked one of the best things to do in both Columbus and Ohio in general. If you're planning a weekend getaway to Columbus with or without a family, COSI should be on your list of places to visit.

I agree with Anna, the unicycle across a tightrope is worth the trip to COSI. really fun spot for grownups to go either with kids or as an alternative to going to grab drinks/dinner. Highly recommend

Meh. Definitely overpriced, and exhibits are mediocre at best. While the area for young children is nice, the rest of the place isn't anything special. Exhibits seem geared for adults or teens/tweets. Make the trip to Indianapolis for the Children's Museum instead, and skip this one.

My kids love it here! My 6 yr old loves all of the hands on areas and watching the different shows. My 2 yr old loves the toddler area where she can run around with other little ones! Definitely a great place to visit and worth buying a membership.

Pretty expensive but if you have kids it's probably worth it. Not worth the stop if you don't have kids

Definitely worth the money. It's enjoyable for everyone. They have snack areas. The kids area is phenomenal, and the tight rope unicycle is for everyone unless your kids can't touch the floor while seated.
