This is one of my favorite exhibits. The ship is located adjacent to the Carnegie Science Center, but you can access it without buying museum tickets if you don't want to see the Science Center. The tour is mostly self-guided and takes you from bow to stern aboard a late WW2 era submarine. The passageways are rather narrow, but I'm... 更多
I had no desire to do the main Science Center, as there were tons of children in those exhibits (which is great--they need to do quality learning activities), but came specifically for the submarine and the IMAX movie. You can purchase these two attractions separately, and you don't need a reservation for the sub--which is nice, you don't have to... 更多
We took our grandson (aged 8) on this submarine and he loved it! It was pretty tight quarters for us adults but he thought it was the best thing ever!!
I was biking the city of Pittsburgh with a friend when we came upon the USS Requin near the Science Center. I'm a huge military history buff so just had to stop. The USS Requin provides a great walk-thru of a late World War 2 and Cold War era submarine. It is surprisingly spacious if you have ever been on... 更多
I am short, 5" 1, and I still had to duck when inside of this Submarine from WWII. It shows how little space these men had to live in when working on the sub. Really Amazing. A must see for anyone interested in History.
This is a real submarine open to the public through the Science Center. The displays are clear, the spaces are tight and the sense of realism is palpable.
Though I've had opportunities to walk through submarines before I always chose not to because it was in a very hot climate and too crowded. On the day we visited it just happened to be cool enough and not too busy that we were able to take our time and enjoy looking through the Requin. It was an interesting and... 更多
Part of the Carnegie Science Center complex, this is a World War II submarine. It is truly amazing to imagine the men living in these cramped quarters during the war. It is worth a visit at least once and kids of all ages just love it. It is still in the water today and in very good shape.
Came upon this by accident while at another attraction. Loved the tour. It was engaging and interesting. A whole new perspective of life in the Navy. Worth the visit.
