About "Adventure in the Valley of the Unknown"
This 9000-square foot exhibit opened in 1999 with the current COSI building. The exhibit was based around the story of a fictional island that had been rediscovered by an international team of scientists. Guests were challenged to find the fabled Lost Treasure of Knowledge by completing tasks and puzzles given to them by four ancient spirits and aided by the scientific team. Once the visitor had succeeded, they were presented with a medallion and a letter left behind by the island's missing king. The popular exhibit closed in January 2017 in order to make room for a new dinosaur exhibition and additional gallery space, in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History.
