Carnegie Science Center

Carnegie Science Center offers four floors of interactive experiences, including the world's largest permanent robotics exhibit, a zero-gravity simulator, the Miniature Railroad & Village®, the Buhl Planetarium, and hundreds of hands-on exhibits. Run, bounce, spin, and climb into Highmark SportsWorks®, a science and sports experience unlike any other! Try exciting sports challenges and explore nearly 30 interactive exhibits about the physics of sports, nutrition and health including the You-Yo, the High Cycle, and a 24-foot Rock Wall. Come aboard the USS Requin to learn how 80 men used their expertise, humor and sheer ingenuity to carve out a rough and adventurous life during Requin's lengthy defense and scientific missions, some of which are still classified to this day! The real Cold War-era submarine is moored along the Ohio River, a short walk from the Science Center. See a movie on the BIGGEST screen in Pittsburgh, the Rangos Omnimax Theater, with larger-than-life imagery, immersive sound, a gigantic dome, and a visual experience that puts you in the center of the action. Pulse to the beat with our laser shows. Be dazzled with brilliant colors and rockin' music as our laserists choreograph sight and sound spectacles to your favorite stars' hits. Plan your visit to this uniquely interactive experience today!
