We spent the afternoon wandering the universe under the dome on the hill named for its donor and visionary Col. Griffith J. Griffith. From top deck to its depths and everywhere in between it looks beautiful after undergoing a 4-year $93 million renovation. And the old parts are the best parts; the pendulum, interactive displays and plenty of eye-pieces to look through and buttons to push. I haven't been inside since I was a kid and I'd forgotten about the pendulum. Funny, 'cause everyone says this, but I remembered it being bigger. Oh, and I weigh 23 pounds on the moon.
