Last year, we introduced you to a new science museum, the Hill Country Science Mill in Johnson City.

On Saturday, it will celebrate it’s one-year birthday with free admission from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and electric pickles, smoke ring air cannons, a fruit piano, a spirograph and a slow-motion photo booth.  The University of Texas Physics Circus entertains from 1-2 p.m.
