**Race Alert!**
Due to road closures related to the Susan B Komen Race for the Cure event downtown, the parking garage under Dorrian Green park next to COSI will open at approximately 9:50am. Please note that heavier than normal traffic is expected throughout the downtown area from 7:30am-10:30am.

Hallway Exhibitions

In 2012, COSI initiated an effort to improve the visual appeal and experience of our hallways and circulation spaces. With limited funding, we developed a combination of temporary experiences, painting, and permanent exhibit acquisitions. An effort was made to include content that would appeal to adults as well as family groups. The new experiences are planned with a nod to our permanent exhibit areas and grouped in collections as opposed to singular exhibits.

From gorgeous photography to thought-provoking collections, enjoy these free, limited-engagement displays on your next visit.

NASA's Universal Stage Adapter System

NASA's Universal Stage Adapter System

NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket is designed to be flexible and evolvable to meet a variety of crew and cargo mission needs – and with an exploration upper stage (EUS) planned for future configurations, the Universal Stage Adapter (USA) will connect the rocket to the Orion spacecraft.

Charles White, a NASA Contractor, visits COSI on specific weekends (please call 614.228.2674 to confirm dates) to share information with COSI guests about the Universal Stage Adapter System.

Michelle Stitzlein's

Michelle Stitzlein's "Moth Series"

Michelle Stitzlein has been creating sculpture with recycled materials as a full-time artist since 2000 in her Baltimore, OH, studio. Her work has been shown in art and craft museums nationally. The “Moth Series,” was inspired by moths in her backyard and the premise that recycled materials have the capacity to metamorphose into larger objects of great beauty.
