      The Carnegie Science Center has long been known as one of the best museums in Pittsburgh. I recently visited it for the first time when my parents were staying with me and I absolutely loved it.

      The Carnegie Science Center is a museum primarily aimed at children, to teach them an appreciation and understanding of the basics of science. Through a variety of exhibits and hand on activities, children can learn everything from how meteorologists predict weather to the way birds stay in


      the air when they are flying. There are exhibits on sound, weather, earthquakes, light, the coral reef, almost anything you can think of. My absolute favorite exhibit, though, was the one on robotics. The robotics exhibit fills an entire floor and has lots of information about robots both real and fictional throughout history, as well as several robots that you can challenge to different tasks. You can try to play air hockey with a robot, shoot hoops against one, test ...

      • a robot’s ability to recognize colors, even make art. Small children can even build their own robot that they can purchase and take home.

        In addition to the many exhibits, the Carnegie Science Center also has a number of shows throughout the day. Some of these shows, like the Imax movies, cost extra, but there are plenty of shows you can see for free. One of the most unique theaters, in my opinion, is the food science theater. When I was

        there the food demonstration was entitled “Fruit flambe.”

        The museum also has a real Cold War era submarine docked outside it, that visitors can walk through. If you aren’t too claustrophobic this is a fantastic experience.

        For small children, I can only imagine that the Carnegie Science Center would be a wonderland. Even adults though can really enjoy themselves and find things to do and learn. If you are looking for something to do in Pittsburgh, this is one museum that I can suggest without reservations.
