Hi! We're having a great time at Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and the only thing missing is you. MAKESHOP, our tinkering space, has real tools and materials such as wood, sewing machines, hammers, nails, a loom, animation station and more. Jump right in, that circuit isn't going to build itself! The Art Studio is calling for your creative energy to design and ink a silkscreen, paint, sculpt clay and create something unique alongside the many working artists who visit. Young ones, you are royalty in the Nursery, a space filled with colors, shapes and textures perfect for your growing minds and bodies. The Attic, Garage and Waterplay (because it's just not fun until your underwear is soaked) round out the permanent exhibits. But not so fast. From marching bands, slam poets and cultural traditions to letters that fall from the ceiling and a crawling maze made out of packing tape, our temporary exhibits, performers, programs, artists-in-residence and artwork are particularly awesome too. If we don't hear the protests of departing kids at the end of each day, we're not doing our jobs right.

There is so much to see and do. Usually there is a special show focused of a theme, ie Clifford. But there are floors of activities that are permanent. The top floor water world is great fun.

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. They offer painting in the studio and they provide...More

The Children's Museum is located on Pittsburgh's North Side. It's a great adventure, with many things to see and do. Lots of learning opportunities and things to pique the interest of kids and adults.
