Dogs! A Science Tail
Understanding the complex and utterly charming nature of canines is one of the hearts of the exhibit. Walls "digging" deeper how dogs live, eat, sleep, and, yes, visit the nearest hydrant provide a window into the mind and personalities of pooches.

Other elements to the exhibit, like the chance to play "Jeopawdy!" and see original pieces by Norman Rockwell and Charles Schulz, give the dog-gone fun day a different dimension. The artworks, by the by, are on loan to California Science Center by the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, which will open near the California Science Center in 2022.
