About Carnegie Science Center

Carnegie Science Center delights, educates, and inspires through interactive experiences in science and technology.

Carnegie Science Center inspires and entertains by connecting science and technology with everyday life. In addition to providing valuable scientific experiences, Carnegie Science Center engages in outreach programs that serve Pittsburgh’s diverse community. The Science Center is located on Pittsburgh’s North Shore along the banks of the Ohio River and is accessible to persons with disabilities.

Carnegie Science Center understands, respects and values physical, cultural, economic and social differences among our visitors and staff.

In order to foster a scientifically literate community, Carnegie Science Center will:

Be the region’s leading family‑centered destination for fun and learning.
Serve as the trusted voice of science for the general public.
Serve as a town square for community dialogue on science and its social implications.
Showcase regional science and technology advances.
Achieve national and international recognition in exhibits and programs.
Excite and inspire young people to explore careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
Attract and engage an audience that reflects the diversity of the regional community.
Collaborate with business and community partners, as well as our sister museums of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
Increase participation of underrepresented youth in STEM education opportunities spanning formal and informal learning.
