    Awesome place to take the kids. Give yourself 3-4 hours to see and do everything including the Omnimax Theatre. A little outdated but still shows great films.

    Ask any of the older gentlemen about the model trains and they'll give you a great guided tour of the whole thing. Also Mr. Rodger is inside his house. Look in left window.

    A great place to spend the day though it can be difficult to take in everything in 1 day w/ small children. The exhibits change often: check the web site. http://www.carnegiesciencecenter.org/

    Loved the Omnimax and the submarine. The test of the museum is geared toward smaller children. Did not see the planetarium. A bit expensive esp once you add on the movie and planetarium.

    For those with kids or not, this place makes learning interactive and fun. Catch a show in the OMNIMAX theater, which plays full length films, on those particularly dreary days.

    Favorite attractions are the Buhl Digital Dome, a planetarium show which transports guests to space and inside the human body, and the Miniature Railroad that brings the history of Western PA to life.

    Lots of fun activities for the kids of all ages! Older ones really enjoy the sports works, and they even have a special area for little ones!

    Carnegie Science Center is a great place for the kiddos on a rainy day, but also conveniently located off the North Shore Trail.
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.
    Neat place with an Omnimax (360 degree) theatre, but very similar to Cosi, so not sure it's worth a Columbus/Ohio resident's time.

    NASA uses robots for a wide array of space exploration activities. Learn how robots think and act in the interactive RoboWorld area, which is the world's largest permanent robotics exhibition. Read more

    Did you know? Industrialist Andrew Carnegie, for whom the Center is named, sought to bring what he called the "noble quartet: art, science, music & literature” to all - regardless of age or income. Read more

    Sports works is a lot of fun... Good way to wear down the kids! Long lines for the climbing wall and the bouncing harness

    Visit the Model Railroad Train Exhibit-- they have a model of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater which is awesome and the animations are spectacular.

    Almost all of the interactive science that was there for the kids, is gone. Had a very boring trip. If it wasn't for the OMNIMAX, it would have been a completely wasted day.

    This place is dirty. Trash cans overflowing a Sunday Morning at 10AM when they open. Managed by young adults who aren't 100% respectful to little kids
