The science center's exhibits are focused on very young children so it wasn't that enjoyable. However, the sub made up for it. Very interesting.

WWII submarine with guide in torpedo room answering questions. Interesting signage explaining things and memorabilia laid out. Included in Science museum ticket or can go separately. Recommend, especially with kids.

Really interesting. I would've enjoyed spending longer, though my kids got a lot out of our strolling-through visit. It's impressive as something to view and more impressive as something that reminds you what it takes/what it took to serve in a naval submarine.

You actually get to descend into the vessel, and view it as it was in 1945, The docents are extremely well versed on its history, as well as technical details.

A tour through the tight confines of a WWII sub may well make you glad you did not serve. Well preserved with interactive screens in each major compartment that gives great detail on life aboard the sub for its sailors. Accurate portrayal except it is...More

The submarine sits behind the Carnegie Science Museum and is worth the money to view. You have to be reasonably nimble to navigate through the doorways to the different compartments in the submarine itself. Everything is authentic and it's a great way to see a...More

Very nice experience on the Requin. To experience the confinement and to see what it would be like to live on a sub for months at a time was interesting.

Even if you are not into naval history this give your a great insight into what life would be like in a submarine. Well presented. Attached to the science museum but you can just visit the Requin for $7. Museum is really geared for kids...More

You can tour throughout the submarine. Also, it is linked to the Science Center, so once you have purchased tickets to the museum, then you can head out and tour the sub.

The center is closed "for renovations related to the new PPG Science Pavilion", according to the website. It should be open on your last day, the 14th, though. You can walk by and see the sub fine from the walking path... More

It's free with admission to the Science Center. I am not sure you can buy admission to *only* the USS Requin.

You can still l park in the Museum lot. I think it is free. You would just walk down to the river and sub is right there. It is cool - small and claustrophobic and every inch is used - I mean every inch!! You will love it.
