I used to take my children there and had many fond memories. So when I took my niece there, I had high expectations. It did not disappoint! We spent five hours and we could've gone back and spent another whole day. She was thrilled and so was I!

Visited in June of 2014. Our son is 8 and we were a little concerned he would be too old. No problem. There was a nice wood-working section that gave him a chance to do something new. There was also the now seemingly mandatory water section for dam building. The only mild negative was the food area. It was not... More

Stopped for a couple of hours of fun while on the Pennsylvania turnpike. Accessible to freeway, with easy parking. Incredibly well thought out exhibits that keep kids very entertained.

Stopped here on our last day of a short trip to Pittsburgh. We expected to stay about an hour and stayed for three hours. A six year old and a nine year old found many activities to do and interesting exhibits - science, art, dramatic play, water play, puppets, and many places to run around. Mr. Rogers Exhibits were scattered... More

This is more of an activity center for children than an actual museum, which makes it well worthwhile for families. Fans of Mr. Rogers (which tend to be people of all ages) will love seeing the puppets and set that resides within this building, which was the old Post Office for Pittsburgh. Highly recommended for families with young children, they... More

Without a doubt the best museum experience since we've had kids!! We live in DC and thought this was even more kid friendly than some of the Smithsonian museums. (We have little kids, 3 & 5 but there are great things here for older kids, too). The cost of admission seems a bit much at first but it's worth it... More

We took my 21 month old son there and he had a blast. So much for him to do even as young as he is. He love the climbing activity and [laying with water on the 3rd level.

The museum is not as big as I thought it would be. And, it's not a museum as most people think of it, it's more of an exploration center. The exhibits are great with lots for the kids to do. And, the Mr. Rogers themed pieces will resonate with the grown-ups. I loved seeing the puppets from the Mr. Rogers... More

I took my kids here in early June (7 year old and 2 year old). They loved it and had a great time! I read the reviews ahead of time and packed swim suits, towels and a change of clothes and I'm glad I did because their favorite part of the visit was the awesome water room. They also have... More

I went here mostly for my daughter- age 10 - but brought my two older boys ages 17 and 15. The museum is fun and has a variety of activities well spaced out within the museum, however mostly younger children were in attendance under age 8. My kids had fun anyway though. They love exploring the art making studio and... More
