Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh
“Play with Real Stuff” is a quote on the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh’s website. That statement is what drives the museums permanent exhibits, which encourage children to build, play and ‘work’, all in fun while learning the physics and mechanics of the way things in our world work.
All kids love water – and the waterplay exhibit is very popular. It is best said, right from the website:
“Bubbling, gurgling, swirling, rising – water flows through this exhibit in amazing ways. Build your own boat and launch it down The River, a 53-foot water table that runs through the Museum’s Waterplay exhibit, to see if it can survive the rapids, whirlpools and the lock system. Create your own spouting masterpiece out of Intriguing Pipes. If it springs a leak, try again! Younger kids can splish splash in the shallow Pond with funnels and waterwheels.”
There is never a day without a special event or exhibit, so check the website an plan your trip accordingly!
