  • We had a great time at the Children's museum of Pittsburg. The museum has different exhibits/rooms. The best part is that all exhibits are hands on and your children will be able to play non stop. The...  more »

  • Amazing how many large groups of summer camp kids the museum allows through in one day. That put a damper on what would have been a really great experience, because it was far too crowded. That said, though, if you can find a slow time, it is a very hands-on, creative museum, albeit a bit small. Also...no hand sanitizer ANYWHERE, which came as a big surprise.
  • Was a blast. All kids age 12 and down enjoyed the exhibits. We also got a chance to play on an experimental touch play exhibit which played music in response to touch. Was awesome idea. Can not wait to see it in full swing.
  • I we t with friends to see the tower clock.I was amazed at the staff involvement , the children's excitement. I went to the gift shop. I was helped and treated very well. The four of us ate at your cafe, which is outstanding. The food is healthy and delicious a d well worth the price . Thank you for a great experience!
  • This museum was ok. Not as much to see and do as I would have liked bit still not bad. Kids will be entertained with the interaction.
  • My 6 and 7 year olds loved it here. It was fun to watch them engage in creative play.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
