COSI in the running for #1 Science Museum in the country

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Today we’re speaking with COSI President and CEO Dr. Frederic Bertley.

COSI is in the running for #1 science museum in the country as one of USA Today’s Ten Best! But you need to hurry and vote now — polls close on Monday, February 17, 2020.


COSI is among 20 finalists, which also includes Chicago’s Field Museum, the National Air and Space Museum, and the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

The winners will be announced at the end of the month.

USA Today’s “10 Best in the Country” describes COSI like this:

“Visitors can turn into astronauts with the snap of the finger at this Columbus, Ohio museum by riding in a mock space shuttle. COSI offers a wide array of permanent exhibits and hosts a few traveling ones, too. If space isn’t of interest, check out the American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery and Ohio’s largest Planetarium, or maybe take a tour of the ancient stories of the sea hosted by Poseidon himself. Lift a 2,437-pound car with the help of a lever in the outdoor Big Science park.”
