TRAVEL BRIEFS

THE BOSTON MUSEUM OF SCIENCE presents the film ``Grand Canyon - The Hidden Secrets'' in the Mugar Omni Theater, beginning Oct. 6. This state-of-the-art movie projection system is the world's largest, featuring a 76-foot-diameter screen with an 84-speaker sound system, and is the first of its size in New England. NEAR LIFE-SIZE DINOSAURS are stomping, hissing, and roaring - with the help of computers - at the New York State Museum in Albany (until Dec. 28) and the Buffalo Museum of Science (from Sept. to Dec. 31). Additional displays and related events are also scheduled. For more information, call (518) 474-5877 (Albany) and (716) 896-5200 (Buffalo). FOR FUN-FILLED EXERCISE, THE JAPANESE are heading for one of their 18 theme mazes. The mazes have seven-foot-high walls and a labyrinth of corridors about two miles long. The object is to go through in the shortest time. One maze drew 380,000 customers in its first year.
