The Columbus, Ohio Cosi has been one of our family’s favorite places to visit. I’ve talked about our visits before in this post and here’s a video of my husband riding the high-wire unicycle at Cosi.

The reason we can afford to go to Cosi often is because we have an awesome affordable reciprocal (Zoo & Science Museum) family membership through CuriOdyssey. If you are looking for the family membership that has the most bang for your buck, this is the best I’m aware of and I plan to renew when ours expires. I homeschool too and love the option of going on many field trips!


On to Cosi! Cosi in Columbus has a new “Dinosaurs: Explore. Escape. Survive.” Exhibit that opened May 28th and ends September 5, 2011. My family and I were invited to attend a special Blogger’s Preview of this exhibit this past Wednesday. We had a great day exploring the new exhibit which includes many educational and hands-on opportunities.

I share several pics in this handy little image viewer by Image Loop (including real-life fossilized dinosaur egg and poop. It saves me time posting a bunch of pictures and its probably a little bit more fun to watch.  In addition to what you’ll see in the slide show, Dinosaurs includes a Maze, climbing wall, a pretend fossil dig, and many interactive stations to design a dinosaur (computer program) and to “be” the dinosaur.

We spent quite a bit of time in the Dinosaurs exhibit “being” dinosaurs, designing dinosaurs, doing the hand’s on activities and watching the dinosaur animatronics (I think thats what they are 🙂 ).  Some of the dinosaurs move –not as in walking around but heads moving, etc.. There is a small Dinosaur Store at the back end of the exhibit also.
