Through a unique and groundbreaking relationship with the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), Columbus’ own Center of Science and Industry (COSI) will now feature a permanent Dinosaur Gallery.
Last week I had the privilege of attending an exclusive preview of the AMNH Dinosaur Gallery at COSI. While there, I snagged some tickets to giveaway (see below for details on how to win!). This opening event highlighted the power of collaboration that is a hallmark of Columbus as local businesses, government and non-profits worked together to make this amazing new exhibit a reality. The preview provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate a remarkable partnership and an equally impressive permanent gallery space. The hope is that this exhibit is yet another reason for people across the country to visit Ohio’s capital city.
The Dino exhibit opens to the public November 18, 2017. It highlights the impressive and surprising connection between prehistoric creatures and life today. The gallery is breathtakingly real and allows adults and children alike to lose themselves among the hands-on activities. Internationally renowned researchers and paleontologists worked to ensure that the gallery is both educational and fun. It’s a full sensory experience during which you’ll even find yourself face-to-face with a life-size Tyrannosaurus rex.
COSI isn’t just for kids! COSI after dark is for 21 and over! It’s from 5:30-10PM and is held the first Thursday of every month. The cost for members is $10 and for nonmembers it is $14 in advance, $16 at the door. There is also a new Flex Pass that can be redeemed for 8 COSI After Dark tickets. You can use it to come 8 different times or you can use it all at once by bringing along 7 friends!
I am so excited to share that I am giving away a 4 pack of tickets to COSI along with a box of adorable dinosaur-shaped chocolates (total value of up to $80)! Tickets can be used for regular COSI admission or to attend COSI After Dark.
