Science Comes Alive In Ohio’s Great Museums

See and understand science like you never have before when you visit one of Ohio’s educating and entertaining science museums.

In Columbus, the well-regarded Center of Science and Industry is a popular destination which is full of hands-on exhibits. Visitors can conduct their own water experiments and even create a newscast. Perfect for kids, there are ocean exhibits and a computer lab with a 3-D printer. Don’t plan to spend an afternoon here – plan to spend an entire day!

In Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Museum Center is home to the Museum of Natural History and Science. This is the spot to engage in creative thinking, explore natural history, stand next to dinosaurs which once roamed the Earth, and learn the story of Umi, the Egyptian mummy of a young boy which dates back more than 1,800 years.

Cleveland’s Great Lakes Science Center is on the city’s vibrant waterfront. Learn about space exploration and the Space Shuttle, enjoy interactive exhibits explaining Lake Erie, and see a movie at the Omnimax Theater.

Neil Armstrong called Wapakoneta home, and today the Armstrong Air and Space Museum honors his legacy and the wonder of space flight. See spacecraft, Armstrong’s spacesuits, and a moon rock.

COSI Columbus

Named the "#1 Science Center For Families in the U.S." by Parents Magazine, the Center of Science and Industry is located on the bank of the Scioto River in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Known affectionately as COSI, the Center features over 300 interactive exhibits in areas following themes such as Energy, the Ocean, Space, and Gadgets.

Families traveling with young children can let them loose in the Little Kidspace, while visitors of all ages get a thrill from exhibits like the outdoor Big Science Park, as well as Lily Pad. COSI’s ample exhibition space makes it an ideal host for traveling exhibitions – past favorites have included “Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition” and “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination”.
