The science center is pretty nice, there is a lot of science here. But the best part is that there are cool robots on the second floor.

The exhibits are always changing. You can tour a sub, or watch a 180 degree movie. My personal favorite is the train exhibit. It is a Lionel train heaven with animated scenery.

My family has visited the Carnegie Science Center many times, the most recent in December, 2017. Our favorite section is the SportsWorks with it's bungie jumping, giant Operation game and so much more. We also enjoy the incredible miniature train exhibit and make sure to set aside at least 20 minutes to allow plenty of time to enjoy the intricate details so painstakingly applied for our enjoyment. The also have a sand storm simulator, earthquake similator and much, much more! My daughter is almost 16 and still loves visiting the Center. There is always something new she didn't see before!

Whenever we have anyone out of town, that's one of the places we take them, The omnimax screen is perfect, the train display, everything is great. You do not see how the time flies when you are there.

fun, informative and very interactive for children of all ages. my boys loved shooting the rockets up in the air, the electrical circuits, earthquake table and much more. My daughter liked the human body display, and looking in the scope as it passes through the esophagus into the stomach! all the kids loved the sports zone area.
