The museum has a great deal to offer families. Plan on stopping by several times...and don't miss the dinosaur excavation simulation.

This was a high-end museum with very user-friendly exhibits. The prehistoric animals and mineral wings were extensive. Military get a discount, which was nice. I hadn't expected much despite the fact that Carnegie had an interest in dinosaurs, so I was pleasantly surprised.

This place is deceptively LARGE! Just when you finish one floor, there's another floor...or another wing...or another exhibit in another hall! SOOO much to see and learn and interact with. Our favorite of course are the dinosaurs and the fossils/gems. Could spend an entire day...More

Exhibits easily rival the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Incredible variety: rocks, minerals, dinosaurs, stuffed birds & artic mammals. Spent 3 hours there & still missed the Egyptian & 3 other exhibits. I would gladly return if in Pittsburgh again.
