Every year, the month of August signals the impending doom of the end of summer and the beginning of the school year. However, there is still time to enjoy the great outdoors and all that summertime has to offer.
Need some ideas? You can beat the heat and catch a movie, or visit one of Ohio’s many great theme parks, or splish-splash in a splash pad.
It is, after all, a little more than a month before we see the change of seasons.
Here are some destinations to put on your bucket list before Labor Day − and autumn − arrive.
‘Marvel Universe of Super Heroes’ closes Labor Day
Don’t miss the last chance to see the “Marvel Universe of Super Heroes” exhibit, which is open through Labor Day at COSI, 333 W. Broad St. The exhibit opened in November 2021 and was extended in May through summer.
The exhibit features life-size recreations of Marvel characters and costumes from Marvel staples such as “Black Panther,” “Iron Man” and “Black Widow.” With original art, props, state-of-the-art interactive experiences and the last-known surviving piece from the first Marvel comic, the exhibit promises to please both casual fans and devout followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The exhibit is not included with general admission and requires a separate ticket.
Also at COSI this season at the Planetarium is a showing of the documentary “Passport to the Universe,” narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks. “Passport to the Universe” explores humanity’s place in the cosmos, taking audiences on a journey from Earth all the way to the edge of the universe. This exhibit is included with general admission.
COSI is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until Sept. 6, when the building closes until Oct. 1 for annual maintenance. For more information on tickets and programming, visit https://cosi.org/.
