With many Columbus institutions still closed due to large-scale power outages in Central Ohio, one major local name is opening its doors for free today.

From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. today only, COSI will be totally free to attend.


“To combat the unprecedented heatwave and power outages affecting members of the Columbus community and with support from the Columbus City Council, Council President, Shannon G. Hardin and the City of Columbus, the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) will be opening up its doors to all community members for free from 10a.m. – 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 16 to enjoy much needed air conditioning and fun,” a press release from COSI reads.

Visitors will have access to the entire museum, except for COSI’s Marvel: Universe of Superheroes exhibit all day long.
