The Pittsburgh Children's Museum is a great destination for families with younger and pre-teen children. There are a lot of activities, and the water area on the top floor is always a hit. I recommend this destination for a few hours whn in Pittsburgh.

We have brought our son here on several occasions. We decided this year to get a season pass. This is a great place to bring kids. A TON of interactive activities for younger kids (our son is 7). I haven't seen another Children's Museum this well done anywhere. Pack a lunch though, if you can. The food there is on... More

If you're looking for the places in Pittsburgh to go with kids, this is one of the top 3. (See also Science Center, Natural History Museum) Tons to do, lots to explore. I'd plan half a day for younger kids, slightly less for older elementary school age. Near the Science Center so make a day of the two.

My boys love the Children's Museum! They have a great staple of play areas for kids of varying ages and abilities. They have a nursery area for little creepers so even the littlest kids can get out of the stroller and explore. There are lots of hands on stations where kids can build and create freely. There are plenty of... More

It was fun and of course educational. There were so many activities we will have to go again sometime soon. A very accommodating facility. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Great little museum, lots of hands on and energy using activities. Will definitely go again. i will bring a change of clothing as the water area was great, but very wet. they have an adult night that my 23 year daughter is eager to attend. The activities were intriguing for us adults also.

I'm not that fond of the children's museum. It seems to cater more to adults than kids and the exhibits which are fun and exciting switch so often it is disappointing to visit. We were members for a year and found that after the 3rd visit, my son only wanted to play in the car or the water room which... More

Two kids and two parents, well-entertained and somewhat educated after spending half a day at this museum. Frankly, if we hadn't had a birthday celebration to attend, we could've stayed longer. Pack spare (dry) clothes unless you plan to avoid the third floor water feature. The kids LOVED it, and they were soaked despite the waterproof aprons provided. It was... More

I originally thought that this museum was just for small children, but there are so many activities that are geared towards older kids as well. Actually kids of all ages. Lots of art and hands on experiences.

My kids are 8 and 14 and this was perfect for them. We have visited other children's museums and this has so far been the best. Worth the admission. We spent about three hours there and that seemed about right.
