In the course of COSI's move to new facilities in November of 1999, the "Triumph of Man" exhibit was demolished. A correspondence from the COSI Public Relations Staff stated:

"After more than 30 years on display at COSI, the Triumph of Man exhibit was disposed of during the course of our move to the new COSI center when we opened in November 1999. The exhibit just did not fit in the new facility. It also was in bad repair due to the ravages of time. We did use a small part of it within our History of COSI exhibit which features icons from our former home."
