Carnegie Science Center values inclusivity and strives to ensure employees and visitors feel accepted, respected and welcomed in its museums and workplaces, including restroom facilities. This policy outlines the museum’s approach to safe and appropriate access to sanitary facilities for all employees and visitors.
Employees, volunteers, visitors, contractors, vendors and others using Science Center facilities are welcome to access restrooms corresponding to their gender identity. Restroom access is at the discretion of the individual to determine the most appropriate and safest option for them.
Accessible restrooms are available on every floor. Some may need or desire additional privacy and, regardless of the underlying reason, may access private gender-neutral restrooms as available in SpacePlace, The Rangos Giant Cinema Exit, and Highmark Sportsworks®. No person, however, shall be required to use such a restroom.
Restroom facilities are designated by posted signage throughout the Science Center. Please refer to visitor museum maps or consult security and/or visitor services staff for specific restroom locations.There are diaper-changing stations in all of our bathrooms, including the single-user restrooms and family-care stations. There is also an armchair in the accessible All User restroom on the 1st floor (marked “Family Care Station”), next to Space Place.
