There's always something to be found at the science center, it isn't just for kids! My favorite exhibit has always been the USS Requiem docked just outside the center. You can self-guide through it, or be led by the tour guides.

Kids were not so sure about this place. They were on summer break from formal education. They loved, loved this treasure. What a Pittsburgh gem. All kids need to experience this one-of-a-kind museum.

If you've got little kids and you're a local to the Pittsburgh area bring them here. But if your tourist, unless you've got nothing like this in your home City, I don't recommend it. And for adults, this is nothing like San Francisco's Exploratorium. This...More

Our children had a blast from the 4yr old up to the 12yr old. All were wore out by the end of the day. Even us adults had fun.

We loved the climbing wall and the ropes courses at the sports center. The human yo-yo (you-yo) area was a hit, too. Lines get long early in the day for these star attractions, so I plan to come around opening time next time I visit...More

Amazing!!! This museum has so much to offer. There are so many hands on activities. I especially liked the body floor. There was an amazing train display. The robotics floor was amazing as well. Definitely worth a visit for any age person.

If I had children with me I would give 5 stars but this museum was not for adults without children. The submarine was very cool and educational. The shows were not very informative for adults and tailored directly to children.
