Carnegie Science Center - Review

The Carnegie Science Center is the most visited museum in Pittsburgh. It is a four floor building filled with scientific exhibits, and is equipped with three demonstration theatres as well. The Carnegie Science Center includes the new Buhl Digital Dome, which is equipped with cutting edge projection technology, the Rangos Omnimax Theater, the Miniature Railroad & Village, the USS Requin (a World War II submarine) and Roboworld, widely acknowledged as ‘the world's largest permanent robotics exhibit’.

Apart from numerous scientific interactive displays and exhibits on all levels, the Center also has hundreds of historic landmarks; The Carnegie Science Center is also home to the Highmark Sports Works Centre, which aims to unite the experience of sports with the laws of science at every age level. In a sports crazy city like Pittsburgh, it is a great place to have. It offers nearly 30 interactive experiences in three thematic areas: Lifeworks, Physics of Sports, and Sports Challenge.

  • Experience the magical world of magnetic forces, lasers, and sound at the Exploration Station, a crowd favourite.
  • For the budding scientists, there is a junior exploration station designed especially for children.
  • You can also visit Space Place, featuring a two-story, walk-in replica of the International Space Station.

The Carnegie Science Center isn’t the most visited museum in Pittsburgh for nothing. It is a highly interactive attraction, where there is something for people of all ages. Not only that, it is a highly enriching and enlightening experience for children and adults alike.

Carnegie Science Center, Pittsburgh Reviews

  • It was a good time with lots of shows and hands on activities. We went without kids and still had a pretty good time. Also it was a Saturday and the crowd size was about as expected. There was a lot of people, but could still easily move around and do activities without much of a wait. One recommendation is to give yourself plenty of time and plan your trip to skip some shows and you can see and play with exhibits faster when shows are going on.

  • We held my wedding reception here and it was fantastic. The employees were patient and helpful, the view was beautiful, the food was delicious and the entire time was lots of fun. It's wonderful for both special events and everyday fun.

  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Science center, submarine and sports complex. It was perfect day trip for us! The staff at the sports complex were very helpful and supportive to my daughter who struggled through the ropes course.

  • Like most places with "science center" in the title, this is really just a place for children to play without going home having learned much about science. However, they do have a fantastic miniature train, a neat "robot hall of fame," and a planetarium. Exhibits change regularly, which is good or bad depending on the exhibit. If you have some young kids, it's worth the $20 per person admission. If not, you might satisfy your curiosity elsewhere.

  • Several exhibits were not working. Definitely for young children!! My older kids were bored and done within an hour. Submarine was the only cool part. Sports place is geared towards little kids as well. Waste of money for our family.
