Located in the heart of Pittsburgh's North Shore between Heinz Field and Rivers Casino, Carnegie Science Center is a family attraction close to downtown and sits along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. It's an ideal destination for motorists and cyclists alike! The Science Center also is within a two-mile walking distance of several other attractions on the North Shore, so you can extend your fun-filled day after taking in the museum's delightful exhibits.
Our early learner exhibit on the fourth floor is being reimagined to offer new and innovative experiences for toddlers and preschoolers. While it is closed, visit Innovation Station, creative pop-up activities designed specifically to delight and ignite your inner scientists! Stay tuned for the unveiling of Little Learner Clubhouse powered by PNC Grow Up Great!
Our Café also is under renovation. Please note that each day a food truck is available for snacks and food. We chose food trucks that serve more child-friendly foods for your convenience.
