Experience a movie on Pittsburgh’s largest movie screen at The Rangos Giant Cinema or explore Da Vinci The Exhibition. 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.
