Discovery Place

For Kids

Located on the third floor of the Pittsburgh: A Tradition of Innovation exhibition, Discovery Place inspires children of all ages to learn about Pittsburgh history.

This learning space on provides young learners with the opportunity to explore Pittsburgh innovations and the invention process in a fun setting where creativity, science, and history merge. The exhibit features hands on and high tech interactive displays, colorful graphics, and challenging games for kids to enjoy.

As part of the Engineering Playground, kids can build bridges across Pittsburgh’s three rivers or design buildings using massive foam building blocks. Other innovation stations allow kids to explore sound and tempo, design a piece of pop art on the Everbright machine, create new products using aluminum, and more!
