We took out daughter to the Carnegie Science Center and she really enjoyed the time we spent there. I would recommend this to be on your list to stop.

Visited the Science Center with my 7 year old daughter. Large place with many different things to do. She had fun but a few things really didn't interest her (robot floor). She loved the submarine and the earthquake simulator. We went in the middle of the week and the place packed. It's a popular place for school field trips and... More

Science made fun while playing and learning while you do. This is a great approach for the youth and adults to absorb valuable information while enjoying it. This location is a must visit if you want your family, friends, etc. to be smarter done easy😀

If you've not brought your children to the Carnegie Science Center, I would highly recommend it. We were members here for years, and I would dutifully take my daughter on off days, summer camps and field trips. She always enjoyed her visits here. The sportsworks attraction is relatively new, and the best part is that it is really hands on.... More

Great experience for both children and adults. Everyone interacted with all the exhibits. The way the human body works was exceptionally well done for most kids to understand. The best part is that every thing had a learning experience.

My 11 year old granddaughter and I enjoyed a fabulous day here. We found a great variety of activities, most of which were hands-on. She especially was fascinated by the robots. We also got to visit the submarine which is open for visits on weekends. Incredible. The exhibit on the human body is great. The space activities are exciting for... More

The kids loved it here and they had a great time. The IMAX movie was busted when we went so that was VERY disappointing. But they did refund us which was nice. Sports complex was a hit and the laser show was fun!

This is a very nice science center compared to others we visited in other cities. The Robots section is pretty cool and the upper floor is for children ages 3-6. We have a 2 year old, 12 and 15 and all of them enjoyed the visit. The cafeteria is really basic, so I don't recommend eating lunch over there.
