Carnegie Science Center

Situated on Pittsburgh’s North Shore, 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. Learn more about Pennsylvania’s waterways in H2Oh! where you can also get a closer look at some of PA’s native species. See real preserved human organs and learn more about the amazing biology of the human body in BodyWorks. See a movie on the BIGGEST screen in Pittsburgh at Rangos Omnimax Theater or experience a live science show in one of three Science Demonstration Theaters. Plan your visit to this uniquely interactive experience today!
