  • Took my son here specifically to see the Mo Wiillems Pigeon exhibit. It did not disappoint. In addition there were a number of other exciting exhibits.

  • So, so much fun, and not just for the kiddos! Spent a good 4 hrs with my family from out of town and even though it's one of the smaller museums, we didn't see it all. Close to the National Aviary.....  more

  • Thank you for keeping the mask mandate until there is a vaccine for the under 5 kiddos. Our son is too young to wear a mask and too young for a vaccine so your mandate is keeping him safe. This is a gem in Pittsburgh and we purchased our membership out of sincere appreciation for you mask policy. Please, please keep masks until the vaccine is available for ages 2+ !
  • Okay. So we have been to a few, by far the best yet. Blocks Trains, Cars, Magnets, Forts. This really is a well thought out place for kids. Safety is top notch. Security at the main entrance and patrolling the grounds. The staff was kind and helpful. THEY EVEN HAVE A SYSTEM FOR LOST CHILDREN. THEY ALL KNOW THE PARENTS NUMBER ARE ON THE WRIST. **** A little warning on the water play section. Your child will need a swim suit or a change of outfit, they will be soaked. Water shoes. Towel.
