COSI After Dark

Photo from the April 2 COSI After Dark.

The COSI Team spends a lot of time figuring out ways to get kids into our building, but COSI After Dark is all about COSI *without* kids. After a hiatus of several years, COSI After Dark made a triumphant return on the night of Thursday, April 2. Over 380 grown-ups got their geek on and played in COSI's classic exhibitions, investigated The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes, and learned how to pick locks at a demonstration by Locksport International. If you missed April's program, no worries: COSI After Dark will return every month with a new theme and a chance to explore COSI's classic exhibitions without kids underfoot (and with a cash bar). On May 1, solve puzzles, hunt down clues, and uncover mysteries in a full-building scavenger hunt for grown ups. On June 5, experience the technology, fashion, fun, and fantasy of Steampunk: make your own airship or tiny fascinator hat, take part in a duel with Steampunk-modified toy guns, compete in tea dueling, even enter a Steampunk fashion show with prizes. 

Here are some photos from the event:
