Very interesting!

This is a real submarine open to the public through the Science Center. The displays are clear, the spaces are tight and the sense of realism is palpable.

Though I've had opportunities to walk through submarines before I always chose not to because it was in a very hot climate and too crowded. On the day we visited it just happened to be cool enough and not too busy that we were able to take our time and enjoy looking through the Requin. It was an interesting and... More

Part of the Carnegie Science Center complex, this is a World War II submarine. It is truly amazing to imagine the men living in these cramped quarters during the war. It is worth a visit at least once and kids of all ages just love it. It is still in the water today and in very good shape.

Came upon this by accident while at another attraction. Loved the tour. It was engaging and interesting. A whole new perspective of life in the Navy. Worth the visit.

Interesting for first time visitors to a sub. The up keep of this Sub is good. Interesting to see the conditions of our US Navy. We had Navy Soilders on our visit with us and they let us know that, nowadays most of this old Sub, space, toilet, showers, eating area, coffee machine are ALL still the same. Getting thru... More

It was closed when I went there, but it was still a great photo opp on a rare sunny day in Pittsburgh. It's not too hard to find even though it's in a city. It's a nice thing to put on your tourist list while you're here.

The USS Requin is a submarine located right outside the Carnegie Science Center. You can purchase tickets separately for it. This was a terrific activity for the family, and it is really eye-opening. Kids have a great time imagining what living for months at a time on a submarine might be like, and adults will marvel that 80-plus men actually... More

For those guys who love history, or weapons, or both is a great experience. Is included with the carnegie center ticket or can get a espcial ticket too. Walk inside the small hallways and imagine yourself spending months inside like a marine is a experince for kids and adults. The city's view is nice from this point.

Fascinating view of WWII life of our submariners, even though this particular vessel did not see any combat. Provides "guests" of the lack of creature comforts on board, esp for the lower ranks. Make time to see it but not meant for claustrophobic or limited mobility people. Kids reactions are priceless!

We visited the USS Requin, but not the Science Center. The USS Requin can be toured separately for $7 per person, no discounts. While the walk through is fairly short, it is worth going aboard. I have always appreciated our military and their families for the sacrifices they make, but after walking through this submarine, feeling crowded with only 5... More
