Carnegie Science Center reviews
It's fun for the whole family! You can find everything from robotics to beautiful miniature railroad to space exploration. We attended some shows and really enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend! more »
Great time to spend with family. Has amazing interactive exhibits which are kept sanitized and well taken care of . more »
Great Place! I've been going there every year since I was 6, great place for most/all ages! All the improvements to the building have been good for the most part. I don't really like how they have removed the indoor roller coaster but I can understand it was for safety measures or such. Anyway definitely recommend for people!
This is the best science center in the world. The train display really tops it off and they have there own submarine!!! My childhood was spent at this wonderful establishment. I would recommend everyone to go.
