The COSI building is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 situation in Franklin County, Ohio. COSI has undertaken this action out of concern for the health and safety of its Members, Guests, and Team.

Nothing is more important to COSI than the health and safety of our guests and team. As a science center, COSI acutely understands the importance of maintaining a healthy and safe environment and the science behind COVID-19 transmission and prevention. COSI made a decision early in the COVID-19 crisis to only reopen to the public when it was safe to do so.

No reopening date for the COSI building has been set. COSI Memberships will be automatically extended for any additional time lost due to COSI’s continued closure. Refunds for any purchased tickets will be made automatically. COSI Gift Memberships can be activated at any time after COSI reopens for a full year’s general admission to COSI and won’t lose value while COSI remains closed.
In the meantime, we hope to engage with you online through COSI Connects. COSI Connects launches audiences of all ages into a universe of science through online videos, activities, plus a free mobile app that enables science exploration even when offline. COSI Connects is helping to the digital divide, promote digital literacy, and address critical science education needs simultaneously.

We look forward to seeing you in person at COSI in the future. Please contact COSI’s Call Center at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 614.228.2674 with any questions.

Sincerely,
The COSI Team
