Fodor's Review

Sorry kids, but Science Alive and the movie theatres were badly damaged in the earthquakes, so check the websites for a reopening date. You (and mom and dad) can wind through a maze of challenging science mysteries and activities. It's a highly interactive space where kids can learn while they play, extending their travel-tired minds at the same time. They get a notebook on entry to tally their results and ultimately solve the puzzle at the end. And after that they can

kick back at a movie in the multiplex center in the same building. It's a great spot for a rainy day.
