Frequent Questions

How far will Carnegie Science Center travel?

Anywhere! We've been across Pennsylvania and as far away as Arizona and Nevada.

Is there a travel charge?

There is no travel charge within 24 miles of Carnegie Science Center. Other locations have a travel charge that is calculated by mileage. Sites that are far away from Pittsburgh may incur a hotel charge.

What kind of space do you require?

We offer a wide variety of programs scaled to different-sized spaces. Assembly programs work best in a gymnasium or auditorium.

Classroom Discovery Days, Science of Health programs, Club Science Series, and Microscope Labs are designed for smaller spaces. Specific requirements for shows can be found on our website.

What if school is canceled because of weather or for another reason on the day we have scheduled a show?

Please let us know as soon as you learn that school is closed. If you have scheduled an All Day Adventure and school has a 2-hour delay, we will still have to cancel the show. We are happy to reschedule for another date. Please note that for schools more than 24 miles away, if we have already traveled and incurred a hotel charge, you will still have to pay our travel and hotel expenses in the event of a cancelation.
