Upcoming Member-Only Events

  • Member Preview - Jerusalem

    Friday, February 13


    Be among the first to experience Jerusalem in 3D on COSI’s National Geographic Giant Screen, followed by a Q&A with Daniel Ferguson, the film's writer/producer/director.


    Jerusalem is the most fought-over piece of land on Earth, yet it remains sacred to more than half of the world's population. This film follows the lives of three teenage girls who call Jerusalem home, and though their cultures and religions differ, their love for the city is the same. Dr. Jodi Magness travels underground to solve some of the city's greatest mysteries with unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites and rare, breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City.

    Jerusalem offers an engaging opportunity for you and your family to explore unique cultures, stunning architecture, and world history in a riveting cinematic experience. Runtime: 45 minutes

    $4 for COSI Members, Free for Supporting Family Members. Advance reservations recommended, space is limited.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to uncover facts and investigate leads to find out which of the suspects in your Spy file, if any, stole a top secret supercomputer chip. Use your secret agent skills and equipment to gather more intelligence:

    • Laser Matrix: Get through the matrix without sounding the alarm!
    • Safe Breaker: Crack the code on the lock of a transparent safe to reveal the documents you need to find your suspect.
    • Spy Satellite: Using latitude and longitude, zero in on the clue waiting for you.
    • Night Vision Goggles: Reveal a nighttime scene that will help you crack your case.
    • Find the Bug: Using an oscilloscope, tap various objects around the room to find the hidden bugs!
    • Hidden Camera: There's someone watching you! Can you find where the camera is hidden?

    Top Secret: License to Spy features artifacts from The CIA Museum, The International Spy Museu, The Cold War Museum, and The Collection of Francis Gary Powers, Jr.
