Carnegie Science Center

Interesting
Set on the north bank of the Ohio River, this slick science museum's contemporary design offers expansive views of the river and the Pittsburgh skyline. Much of the first floor is devoted to the OMNIMAX Theater. On the second floor, be sure to visit the Planetarium and see the Miniature Railroad and Village with its 100 animated pieces. On the fourth floor you'll learn about robotics and lasers in The Works multimedia lab. Moored in the river behind the museum is the USS Requin, a World War II submarine.
