Very nice experience on the Requin. To experience the confinement and to see what it would be like to live on a sub for months at a time was interesting.

Even if you are not into naval history this give your a great insight into what life would be like in a submarine. Well presented. Attached to the science museum but you can just visit the Requin for $7. Museum is really geared for kids...More

You can tour throughout the submarine. Also, it is linked to the Science Center, so once you have purchased tickets to the museum, then you can head out and tour the sub.

Because my hubby was on submarines the tour guides really got a lot of info from him. I had to leave because of the Diesel smell.

Part of the Carnegie Science Center & a must see. George (guide in torpedo room) was excellent & had served on a sub similar to the Requin. He graciously shared some of his memories of life on a sub which made our tour very memorable....More

What a pleasant surprise to find this submarine right out in the Ohio River! Was not expecting that. Take a minute and check it out when in Pittsburgh!

This is a neat little side trip to see from the Carnegie Science Center. If you're claustrophobic then maybe stay away. It is a tight fit but it is neat to see some of the old things inside. The kids like it.

Visited the USS Requin while visiting the Carnegie Science Center with my 7 year old daughter. She liked it so much we went through twice. The submarine is in excellent shape they allow you to walk through a good portion of the sub. It's amazing...More

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.
