This is must see for families in Pittsburgh. They have multiple floors of exhibits, an IMAX theater, and a WWII submarine tour. There are separate fees for each of these attractions but still a great place for the whole family for a day!

I took my pregnant daughter, her husband, & 2 granddaughters ages 2 & 4 for the first time. There is something to do for all ages and it's hands on learning. The admission is very reasonable and you can spend the whole day there as they include an on site restaurant with fare from burgers to salads. Also has an... More

We spent all day here, I like one thing is that they have very easy access for disabled people to tour there. My friend had an accident 20years ago and since then he was sitting in the wheelchair, and every time we visit, he chose to stay at home since there's some place we want to go but it's not... More

My family and I loved the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh! There is so much for everyone to do that you should allow yourself the entire day. It is definitely worth the price of admission. It is well structured, with great knowledgable staff. Be sure to invest in at least one extra if you can, we chose to see a... More

I bit pricey in my opinion, but lots to do and see. Science of cooking classes are really cool. Visit in the summer and also get to tour a submarine right outside the Center.

Our 2 teenage son's loved the interactive part of the center sponsored by the local health system. Then they competed against a robot for basketball free throws for an hour. There are plenty of activities to entertain the parents, too

we went to see Hienz Field, then since it was raining decided to check out the museum. A good way to spend a few hours and learn some things about science. Cool submarine out back too, easy parking and Imax theater experience

I don't normally write reviews about stuff, but two of your workers in the sports works building really stuck out. Julius and Paris, two young men working the trampoline, were absolutely wonderful. Keeping the kids occupied while they waited their turn and cheering them on when they were jumping. They seemed to really like the kids instead of just doing... More

We were there for hours. So much to explore and do. We didn't have time to go to the sports science building next door. Next time, we will have to plan the entire day here.

Attended a sneak preview event and had so much fun interacting with robots and launching rockets! The IMAX movie was a bonus and fantastic. The staff was very helpful with lots of great information. A wonderful place for kids of ALL ages!
