Getting Started

We make booking a reservation as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Reserve your field trip today by following these steps:

Step 1: Review the field trip planner and/or these web pages to decide what you would like to incorporate into your visit. Jot down any questions you might have for our staff before you call. Refer to the back inside cover of the Field Trip Planner for a grade-by-grade guide to shows at the Science Center.

Step 2: Collect the following information before calling. Our Reservations staff will need this information before we can schedule your visit.

  • Date of visit
  • Arrival and departure time
  • Estimated number of adults (include teachers and parents)
  • Estimated number of students
  • Lunch plans (times are assigned on the day of the visit)
  • Special needs
  • Let us know if you have visited in the past.

Step 3: Call us at 412.237.3400.

Our team will help you book your visit and talk with you about educational anchors and standards as they relate to our offerings. We’ll schedule your show(s) and will provide you with information for the day of your visit.

Rates are available to groups of 15 or more people (includes students, parents, and teachers). Groups with less than 15 will be charged for a total of 15 admissions. Membership cards are not valid for group admission. Please call to schedule programs well in advance of your visit.
