    Everything is so cool here. Love the train setup!

    Very disappointing. This should be called the Carnegie Children's Museum, as there is no attempt to engage science-curious adults.

    Daft Punk laser show is pretty dope.

    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.

    Free admission with an RMSC annual membership.

    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.

    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 A little outdated but still shows great films.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Sheri Fresonke H.

    Awesome submarine, robots, guitars, sportsworks and more, best, they are open Monday

    Sheri Fresonke Harper · June 25, 2012

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

    Michael Almony · March 12, 2012
  • Rachel H.

    Make sure to check out the old submarine and the Omnimax Theater!

    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

    Andrea Rupert · February 19, 2012
  • Brandon V.

    Daft Punk lazor light show ftw !

    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.
