Explore Science in a New Way!

Whether you're seeking a science adventure, or just looking for things to do in Pittsburgh, Carnegie Science Center is a fun-filled destination guaranteed to ignite the “Wow!” in everyone.

Visit Pittsburgh’s best attraction and the most-visited museum, with four floors of interactive exhibits. Marvel at astronomy in Buhl Planetarium, discover the science behind robotics in roboworld®, and learn about the human body in BodyWorks. Watch hair-raising live shows and discover an array of programs for the entire family. Take a step back in time aboard our Cold War-era submarine, or watch model trains chug through western Pennsylvania in our Miniature Railroad & Village®, or catch a movie on Pittsburgh’s largest movie screen at The Rangos Giant Cinema! And, if you are looking for physical activity, test your bravery on our Ropes Challenge, one of the many sports-related activities in Highmark SportsWorks®. There's no shortage of fun things to do in our museum.

Experience a movie on Pittsburgh’s largest movie screen at The Rangos Giant Cinema or explore the world’s largest LEGO® art exhibition at THE ART OF THE BRICK by Nathan Sawaya and then build your own creations in The Science of the Brick! Discounts apply when you add either of these two amazing experiences to your museum visit. Or, if you are short of time, just visit either or both of them and come back another time to explore the rest of the museum.

There's no shortage of fun things to do at Carnegie Science Center.

Located in the heart of Pittsburgh's North Shore between Heinz Field and Rivers Casino, Carnegie Science Center is a family attraction close to downtown and sits along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. It's an ideal destination for motorists and cyclists alike! The Science Center also is within a two-mile walking distance of several other attractions on the North Shore, so you can extend your fun-filled day after taking in the museum's delightful exhibits.

Personal weapons and firearms are strictly prohibited on the Carnegie Science Center campus.
