CoSA Spaces

Discover the exciting world of CoSA!

19. and 20.10.2019

At CoSA, there are 13 spaces where you can experience technical and scientific marvels and phenomena in an easy-going atmosphere. Look forward to a variety of interactive games and entertaining topics. Here at CoSA, the rule is “please touch” rather than “do not touch”!

To better plan your visit, all areas indicate how much time you probably need to experience them properly. This way you can always make the best of your stay and have a great time whenever you come to CoSA.

A big programme and numerous events guarantee you can come to CoSA time and again and always be fascinated!


With a CoSA Basic Ticket*, the nine spaces are freely accessible without a guided tour: CoSA_MedLab, CoSA_Experimentarium, CoSA_Technology, CoSA_Sustainability, CoSA_DIY, CoSA_Visions and CoSA_Plus with changing special exhibitions.

In the CoSA_Coding area, you learn more about the wide world of programming or meet experts from the fields of coding and gamification. You might well decide to become a developer yourself!

In addition, CoSA_Community invites you to linger, network, brainstorm or chill, and also offers space for special events of our cooperation partners and special guests from companies or universities. Use our Professions Terminal to find out everything about many different professions. "Courage pays off!" This is our motto as we invite young entrepreneurs to present their ideas and inventions at CoSA_Community. 

For workshops at the Natural History Museum and CoSA on various exciting topics send us your booking request!


In addition to the CoSA Basic Ticket*, you can book a Timeslot Ticket for CoSA_A(R)dventure.
