What is there to do?

Science can be fun when kids visit a place like Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh! 

This super fun, creative, hands-on and interactive museum is filled with exhibits and activities for kids with the aim to connect subjects like science and tech to everyday life.

Did you know that there are actually FOUR floors of interactive exhibits? That's a lot of fun to be had! They are not just for kids either - parents, you get to have a great time too!

Each exhibit and area teaches you something different. The H2Oh! overlooks three rivers, where you can learn all about the rivers themselves, the habitats, and even some pretty fun science about water!

The Exploration Station is a whopping 8,000 sq ft of fun-filled activities that encourage open-ended exploration and problem-solving. Kids can uncover the why and how of science concepts, from sound, lasers, to embryology!

The Atrium is the perfect place to learn all about the physics of flight and air - it will literally blow you away!

There is history to be learnt wiht the real Cold-War era submarine - the USS Requin, and get excited for the WORLD's largest permanent robotics exhibits - roboworld! How amazing!

Space is waiting too as you blast off to the Buhl Digital Planetarium, where a full dome experience can take you to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, as well as inside the human body!

With science workshops for families and kids, as well as summer camps and science sleepovers, kids won't want to stop learning at the Carnegie Science Center! What will you learn today?
