Not one year, not two, and not even three years in a row. COSI has staked its claim as one of The Arch City’s crown jewel attractions after being named the country’s best science museum in a massive USA Today readers’ poll for the fourth consecutive year.

This year, as has been the case since 2020, COSI took the top spot in USA Today’s annual 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards.

After being nominated alongside several of the country’s best science museums, USA Today readers voted, and COSI came out on top.

Here’s what USA Today had to say (again) about COSI:

COSI offers a wide array of permanent exhibits and hosts a few traveling ones, too. Check out the American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery and Ohio’s largest Planetarium, or maybe take a tour of the ancient stories of the sea hosted by Poseidon himself. Lift a 2,437-pound car with the help of a lever in the outdoor Big Science Park. 

The Columbus museum is currently hosting a slew of interesting exhibits, like the world-renowned “Tutankhamun—His Tomb and his Treasures” and a newer offering focusing on the fascinating diversity of life in the natural world called “Nature’s Superheros.”
