Calling all scientists, young and old: COSI has announced its reopening plans this coming July.
After four months of lock down, COSI once again welcomes Columbus back in. On July 8, COSI will reopen to members and will open to the general public on July 15.
Dr. Frederic Bertley, COSI President and CEO
“In the midst of a global pandemic, the need for science literacy and engagement has become more obvious than ever…Only science will put this pandemic behind us. We look forward to welcoming everyone, including the scientists and leaders of tomorrow who will save us from the next global crisis.”
COSI will operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. once it opens back up on July 8. The beloved science museum will be implementing common safe social distancing rules such as mask-wearing and staying home if you’re showing any symptoms of sickness. All of the guidelines for guests and employees can be found here in COSI’s reopening guide.
