Columbus Landmarks, Museums Closed For At Least Three Weeks


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The fears of the spread of Coronavirus, along with the Governor's order regarding large gatherings, have also affected local Columbus landmarks and museums.

COSI announced Thursday it would close beginning Friday, and for the next three weeks, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

A similar policy applies to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, across Broad Street from COSI. That museum is hoping to reopen on April 8th.

The Franklin Park Conservatory is also closing beginning Friday, and will stay that way for at least three weeks. Conservatory officials did not reveal a specific target date to reopen.
