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.
