This is a nicely setup museum that offers educational aspects as well as entertainment, especially for families with children. There are buttons to be pressed and exhibits to jump into. It's a very hands-on museum and always very crowded. There is even an IMAX cinema and a submarine which can be toured outside. Also, there is a nice cafeteria in the lower level for snacks.

Love the Omnimax theater movies. Nice setting near the casinos along the rivers. Very nice area near Heinz Field and many restaurants.

The main science center has interesting "technical" exhibits for the science-oriented person(child or adult) as well as a great play area for youngsters to burn off some energy. The Sport Center lets you test athletic skills and burn off more energy. You can test your baseball throwing speed, jump heights, balance, etc. This is really fun for youngsters, but even adults can be challenged. Definitely worth a visit.

I especially liked the tour of the submarine. Exhibits are better for elementary and middle school kids.
