If you've never been in a small submarine, this exhibit is worth a visit. The way the interior is crammed so as to be functional is fantastic. Just looking at the multitude of levers, dials, knobs, etc. is overwhelming. Pity the poor sailor who had...More

Great way to safely see the inside of a submarine. You will be shocked at the amount of stuff is packed into the sub - just imagine what it would be like to live in it for months.....Not for me.

The USS Requin is a fantastic stop for all as part of the Carnegie Science Center, and almost a must-see for anyone interested in Naval history. Most of the submarine is open for visiting, and it is easy to spend at least an hour here...More

I really enjoyed touring the sub, it provided many historical facts and offered the experience of life on a sub many years ago.

Our 7 year old son loved to experience the submarine. He looked at every little space and had a lot of questions. The gentleman working was kind and answered all of them with great enthusiasm!

The center is closed "for renovations related to the new PPG Science Pavilion", according to the website. It should be open on your last day, the 14th, though. You can walk by and see the sub fine from the walking path... More

It's free with admission to the Science Center. I am not sure you can buy admission to *only* the USS Requin.

You can still l park in the Museum lot. I think it is free. You would just walk down to the river and sub is right there. It is cool - small and claustrophobic and every inch is used - I mean every inch!! You will love it.
