Carnegie Science Center is home to The Rangos Giant Cinema, Buhl Planetarium, and three theaters bursting with out-of-this-world adventures.

Race into The Rangos to be transported around the world, under the sea, and sometimes into the future! Along with vibrant education films, The Rangos periodically hosts feature movie nights with cult classics that are best viewed on our giant screen, the only Certified Giant Screen in Pittsburgh.

Soar through the rings of Saturn in our state-of-the-art Buhl Planetarium. This high-definition, full-dome experience will take you to the far reaches of the galaxy! Astronomy shows are offered throughout the day and are included in General Admission. For dynamic musical experiences with laser beams, add on laser show tickets. Hear your favorite artist, from Taylor Swift to Pink Floyd, and their hits set to dazzling lights and brilliant laser graphics.

Witness chemistry, physics, biology, and more come to life through live demonstrations daily included with General Admission to the Science Center. Volunteers from the audience enter shows to join the science fun on the Science Stage, BodyStage and in the Works Theater!
