We recently visited and the kids had a great time! There is an art room, where they have 5-6 different art projects going on that the kids can participate in - they had screen printing, sculpture making, painting, mono-printing, bicycle wheel weaving and stencil rubbing all going on while we were there. There were plenty of volunteers there helping the... More

A rainy Tuesday in April looking for an indoor activity, took my 16y/o, 15y/o, and 8y/o. The teens were skeptical as we walked in. I told them to think of it as more geared towards their little brother and we would find something more geared to them later. As it turned out, all 3 enjoyed themselves. There was more for... More

This is a great day long destination for younger children. I definitely would recommend packing swimwear if visiting the water playground on the top floor. Allow several hours minimum.

We are annual members and I brought my new daycare provider in to the museum today for my 1.5 YO to enjoy the day. I arrived at 9:35, thinking the museum opened at 9:30 but was mistaken. Morgan informed me I had to wait until 10:00am to check-in. She was working at her computer at the check-in desk but advised... More

We apologize that your experience was handled poorly. Customer service is extremely important to us and we do train staff on a regular basis. We do not check in visitors until 10am, but our staff member could have added your caregiver to your membership before that time. Members often email or call in a similar change in the morning so...

We visited with our four children, ages 2 - 9 years. I am glad I read some reviews and packed bathing suits for everyone. Definitely helpful with the super fun 3rd floor water exhibits. We were in Pittsburgh for the day, and the museum was our primary destination. We didn't hurry through any of the exhibits, and spent five hours... More

Thank you for your comments. We’re glad you had fun visiting the Museum with your family. I’m sorry you found the cleanliness of the Museum inadequate. Our Facilities staff do check the restrooms throughout the day to tidy up, although access to them can be more difficult on days when we have many visitors. We clean the entire Museum on... More

A group of us visited in order to see if our students would like to go. We visited only the stations included in the price so we didn't do any make stations. It was a very nice place and a lot of staff to help. We will be taking our students here on field trips.

We brought our daughter who is 18 months old. She had so much fun. We brought a change of clothes for the 3rd floor water activities but most kids were in bathing suits. Next time we will bring her suit!

We visit here often & love it. I appreciate the healthy food options in the cafe. You may want to remember a change of clothes though. The 1st time we visited, my kids got soaked on the top floor (water floor) and I was not prepared.
