Best Museum: COSI

From the March 28, 2013 edition

Oh COSI, you sneaky little guy, tricking us into learning since 1964.

It almost doesn’t seem fair that the Center of Science and Industry gets to call itself a museum. Sure, it has, like, actual “science” and “facts” and stuff. But it’s also incredibly fun, and not just for kids.

Where else can you ride on a high-wire unicycle? Watch rats play basketball? Make your hair stand on end? Drink cocktails and perform/watch experiments? Or attend a beard and mustache competition? Nowhere, that’s where.

No wonder Alive readers voted COSI as the city’s best museum again.
