Our science loving 18 year old enjoyed visiting this museum and wanted to get a job there by the time we finished. The space section, robotics area and train display are particularly excellent. The submarine outside in the river was a special treat that is included in the admission. It's a bit difficult to find outside but don't miss it.

The science center is fun for and informative for all ages. With kids 12 and 11 they really had fun. Nice walk from Fort Pitt and not far from downtown hotels.

Our students really enjoyed the exhibits and the ability to do hands on learning with many of them. The space walk and robot exhibit were the favorites. They had a ton of fun at Sports works in spite of a couple of longer lines for the rock wall and simulator.

Great museum. Geared for younger kids but my 20 years old still enjoyed. Dont miss the model train exhibit and the submarine in the back yard.
