Carnegie Museum of Natural History
This excellent museum rivals similar institutions in larger cities like New York and London, thanks to the vast Carnegie fortune. The museum makes for a great day out with the kids, and the surrounding area also offers many attractions. Exhibits have included displays on the Amazon rainforest, ancient Egypt, African and North American wildlife and the perennial favorite for kids as well as adults, dinosaurs.
My Dad took me to The Carnegie each spring as a child. I took all of my classes there as well. It is the best museum in the country, better than The Smithsonian, in my opinion. They have the greatest display of dinosaurs in the world. Their collection of rocks is also very impressive. A free library is also housed in the rear of the building. Phipp's Conservatory awaits right behind, & The Cathedral of Learning is just across the street with it's international classrooms, which are especially charming right around Christmas*
