Long Description:
There are a number of areas at the museum. Our children enjoyed the WaterPlay area where they wear raincoats, but still get all wet. Since this is Pittsburgh, there is a section devoted to Mister Roger's - they enjoyed watching the trolley move up and down the track.


Admission is $10 per adult and $9 per child (under 2 is free).
Parking is $5 for non-members ($3 for members).
The local city bus has a stop in front of the museum.
