Best Museum

From the Best Museum edition


333 W. Broad St., Franklinton



COSI comfortably beat out last year's winner, Columbus Museum of Art, proving it's not just for kids. The 320,000-square-foot mega-museum houses all the fun (and science) you can pack into one day. And who doesn't love a competitive game of rat basketball? COSI's current exhibit, "Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body," may seem slightly juvenile, but you'll probably learn more than you'd expect. Next month, COSI's most visited centerpiece, "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition," returns with full-room recreations, authentic treasures and 100 new artifacts.

Runners-up: Columbus Museum of Art, Wexner Center for the Arts
