Parking at COSI
Scioto Peninsula Underground Garage Parking
The most convenient parking nearest to COSI is the City of Columbus’ underground garage immediately west of COSI, managed by LAZ Parking. Payment is accepted at LAZ Pay-On-Foot stations located on the ground level of the garage elevator lobby or inside COSI near the Guest Services Desk. Cash and credit card payments are accepted. Please obtain a parking discount stamp at the COSI Box Office and pay for garage parking at a LAZ Pay-On-Foot station before returning to your vehicle.
Discounted underground garage parking is $5 for COSI Members and $6 for the General Public. Please visit the COSI Box Office with your parking ticket to receive a discount stamp. The garage parking fee without a discount stamp is $6 for the first three hours, $2 for every additional hour, up to $15 per day. Discounted parking for COSI Members and Guests is available only in the City’s underground garage and not in adjacent surface lots.
COSI Reciprocal Policy
COSI checks IDs for reciprocal admission and strictly enforces the ASTC “90-Mile” reciprocal policy. ASTC reciprocal admission benefits do not apply to reciprocal members whose place of residence is less than 90 miles from COSI. Per ASTC policy, this distance is measured “as the crow flies”, meaning that it is based on the linear radius between your place of residency and COSI, not driving distance.
