Loved visiting this museum. The whole family enjoyed it. Lots to do and see! All of the exhibits were interesting and my 8yr. old had a great time!
After visiting the museums of the Smithsonian earlier this year I assumed it would be hard to be impressed with another museum collection. I was wrong because the Carnegie Natural History Museum was equally as impressive. In fact, the Dinosaur display here outshines the smaller more outdated collection at the Smithsonian. Having visited Dinosaur National Monument long ago it was... More
This museum is absolutely amazing. You walk in and you are immediately picking your chin up off the floor. The architect room has life size casts of some of the most stunning buildings in the world.

I LOVE the museum!! Ive been going there since I was a child and theres something different to see every time! They're always growing and changing - The art collection they have is amazing too! Must see if in Pittsburgh!
