I woke up one morning to a message on the dry erase board.
Fortunately for Sam, it was a good day to go. Most of the recent renovations were complete.
Miriam, who wants to be a paleontologist, had a blast digging for dino bones until the rubber crumbs got in her shoes. They also have a U-shaped room with windows where you can watch real scientists cleaning off fossil bones.
Here she is with a replica of a dino leg. She told me all about it, courtesy of her favorite show, Dinosaur Train.

Sam spent most of his time in the mind-puzzles. You can buy most in the gift shop as well.
Another of Nicholas' favorites was the water table.
In the background you can see part of the Mister E Hotel, full of optical illusions. Your eyes will be buggy by the time you get 2/3 through. Other fun stuff to do includes a small space section, a music corner, a young kids playground, and a planetarium. Overall, Science City isn't much compared to other children's museums we've been to, but it will kill a few hours. Speaking of which, it's only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, plus a couple Monday holidays.
It's not technically part of Science City, but free of charge is the train models around the corner.
