We went for a summer getaway that was not too far from home and family friendly. We took kids ages 8, 4, 2, and 6 months. There was something for all the ages. The younger ones favorite part was the level that had the water play, and the oldest really liked the robot display they currently had. Overall the center... More

We went to the Science Center with our two little ones (18 months and 4 years) and my wife's family. We have been here many times over years and it never gets old. Four floors of discovery for ALL ages, the USS Requin, the SportsWorks, the IMAX, and the planetarium. They also have special classes and events throughout the year.... More

Omg!!! This place is awesome. It has 21+ nights that are a great way to get out and see the center with adults only and drink. It's almost like you get a special pass to see the center. They always have great and different things there...robots, beer, and back to the future nights all great!!

From the new hands-on sports section, to the submarine, to the huge train layout to all the interactive exhibits this is the best science center my family has visited. It trumps places like the Liberty Science Center in NJ. The Carnegie is clean, the staff is friendly, even the cafeteria food is pretty good.

Great hands-on experience. You MUST go to the submarine outside! Great on a rainy day but I'm sure it would be packed. LOTS and LOTS of kids running around and we are 2 adults but still a great time.

The visit was a LOT of fun. We could have spent the whole day there. There were a lot of hands on fun things to do (robot, games, water stuff, the sports section, etc.) as well as exhibits (space, miniature rail road, etc.) the USS Requin Submarine. We spent a good portion of the day there and wasn't able to... More
