Simply the best natural history museum in the region and one of the best in the country. Fabulous for kids. Lots for them (and you) to do. This is a must see in Pittsburgh.

We took our kids to the museum this weekend. What a joy to see a toddler with his first dinosaur experience. I think we circled that room 4 times. Anyone from Pittsburgh with little ones should consider a membership. We only did the dinosaur area this visit but plan to go back soon to check out more.

Few know this was the site for some of the last Batman movie. However, what a great collection. The building is grand, the art and Natural History gallery rivals the Met and Natural History Museums (and I'm from NY). Go if you like well don't museums!

My husband loved this. He enjoyed literally every second of it. It has 7 floors of history. There is a section for children and a gift shop. Fun Time!

I loved every single moment that I was there. If I ever go back to Pittsburgh, I'll be sure to go again, and spend even more time there!
