Needed: a sharper mind

Our trip home to Iowa with my granddaughter has been delayed due to the extended flooding in the Midwest. The train will only take us as far as Denver, then we would have to take a bus to Omaha, then find a car or our own way on to Mt Pleasant. We shifted our tickets to later on when hopefully the train will run the whole way, but in the meantime I need to find more things to do to entertain her besides the pool. It has been a long time since I had a 5 year old at home. Any ideas anybody?

How about the Zoo and This is the Place monument?

there's the aquarium in salt lake and the hansen planitarium (if she's into space and stars). there's also the dinosaur museum at thanksgiving point.

Her other Grandma got to do the Zoo and This is the Place, and Jack and Holly took her to the planetarium before they came here. However, I didn't know about an aquarium. Where is it? She absolutely doesn't want to go to the dinosaur museum, though I don't know why.
