Preschool Semesters

The goal of Carnegie Science Center is to provide a safe, welcoming, and enriching experience for all of our program participants. With the health and safety of our community, visitors and team members, and their families in mind, Carnegie Science Center has decided to cancel Preschool Semester II: Creepy, Crawly, Bugs and Preschool Semester III: Tinker Time. This decision is consistent with recommendations set forth by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Allegheny County Health Department regarding social distancing at large events. Like all institutions, businesses, families and individuals, Carnegie Science Center is actively planning for safe and healthy operations during the emerging global COVID-19 pandemic. If you have reservations for a Preschool Semester, please contact our Registration Team at for more information.

Please note: Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh are temporarily closed, including Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History, Andy Warhol Museum, and Carnegie Science Center – The Rangos Giant Cinema, Mummies of the World exhibition, USS Requin (SS 481) submarine, and Highmark SportsWorks®.
