Carnegie Science Center
The Carnegie Science Center is one of the four Carnegie museums of Pittsburgh. It houses a world-class planetarium, a huge aquarium, the OMNIMAX cine theater and three demonstration theaters where live shows take place. This learning and entertainment hub is the perfect place to take children for a fun-filled day out. Spread across five floors of educational space, it serves as an interactive amusement park for children of all ages. Tickets can be bought at the Center or online. Check the website for more details.
Big or small the Carnegie Science Center is one of those places that you leave having been entertained, wowed and ultimately a little smarter than when you went in. There are floors of hands-on activities for big and little kids to play and experiment with. Then there's the IMAX, an experience not to be missed.
I took my teenage bys and husband there and I had to convince them that they would have a blast.
Being anti museum anyway they were very resisitant. They were sold when we got to the PNC sports center just accross the street from the main building.
They were also impressed with the sub that sits docked in river behind the building.
It was truly a great experience and the whole family found something they loved to do!
this place is awesome, between teh main center and the sports works, you can spend a day trying out all the different things. (we also watched charlie and the choc. factory in the Imax, AWESOME!) they offer " midnight floyd" a lazer show every fri and sat at midnight. they also have other bands/ shows at 10 and 11. very cool experience. the wwII submarine is cool to go through to see how small it is inside and how complex.
Ok, think you've seen all the science museums you care to? They have the Imax you've seen ten times, but then it's a wonderful museum. The kids made us go back the next day. In another related building they have virtual sports--hockey, golf, basketball, pool, trampoline, baseball pitching, snowboarding, you name it. You do not want to miss that. Best I have seen.
