Carnegie Science Center delights, educates, and inspires through interactive experiences in science and technology.
Recipient of the 2003 National Award for Museum Service, Carnegie Science Center1 inspires and entertains by connecting science and technology with everyday life. In addition to providing valuable scientific experiences, Carnegie Science Center engages in outreach programs that serve Pittsburgh’s diverse community. The Science Center is located on Pittsburgh’s North Shore along the banks of the Ohio River and is accessible to persons with disabilities.
The Carnegie Science Center2 opened in 1991.
With a history that dates to October 24, 1939, the Carnegie Science Center is the most visited Museum in Pittsburgh. Among its attractions are the newly constructed Buhl Digital Dome (which features the latest in projection), the Rangos Omnimax Theater, the Miniature Railroad & Village and the USS Requin (a World War II submarine).
It also includes Roboworld, touted as “the world’s largest permanent robotics exhibit” with more than 30 interactive displays featuring “all things robotic”. This area also includes the first physical home for Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Hall of Fame.
Under the leadership of Robert Wilburn, Buhl Science Center merged with the Carnegie Institute and a new $40 million Carnegie Science Center was constructed.
There are three penny machines. The first two machines are just inside the main entrance by the gift shop.
