The first time I took my kids, which was several years ago, they had a blast. This year, as teenagers, they weren't as "excited" about it. We had a nice time, but didn't stay as long and was ready to leave.
several floors of exhibits on varied scientific topics. We are members, have gone many times. Many of the exhibits change periodically. Also, some new renovations are underway, so expect new things. Look at the website to see what is current

We were impressed with the quality of the exhibits and that the general admission includes the Sport Works and Requin submarine. The Art of Bricks required additional fee, but is worth paying it. This special Lego exhibit recreates some of the most famous art works....More
We took a self guided tour of the submarine located outside the Science Center. We learned the history of the sub and it's occupants during WWll. You could not imagine how crowded it was for the soldiers. It's a must see!

There are actually two buildings, including the Sports Science building (Sportsworks), plus the submarine in the back. It would depend on the ages of the people in your group, but you could easily spend four hours in the museum. The submarine is very interesting, as is the miniature train exhibit. Out of towners sometimes miss the Sportsworks building, but it is included in the price and is a must-do! Note: Make sure there isn't anything major going on in the Heinz Stadium as the museum closes if there is. Have fun!
