This post is brought to you by VisitPITTSBURGH! Thanks for hosting our activities while in Pittsburgh!
My family was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this past week. There were TONS of things to do, but we had to narrow it down to only a few things, since our time there was so short. Our first stop on the list was the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.
We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Pittsburgh-Downtown and had a great time, but the hotel was within walking distance of the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. We have four kids ages 7,5,3, and 1, so the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh was one of our first stops.
When you walk up the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, it catches your eye! They make it appealing to kids and my children couldn’t wait to run inside to see what kind of trouble they could get into. My favorite part of the museum is that it was not targeted to just one age group, there was something for all of my kids to do. The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh was especially exciting to us because we don’t have anything like this directly close to us.
It was hard to catch my boys in any photographs because they were off playing so much. However, what I did manage to grab of them, they were having an awesome time. Some of our favorite parts of the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh were the following–
- Musical Rocks
- Wooden Mirror
- and the MAKESHOP®
Hannah and I spent a lot of time in the Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit while the boys explored the Cool Stuff Room and the Garage.

We also spent some time painting, but at that point, my kids were pretty tired. I loved how much my kids got to learn and play, which is exactly what we wanted them to be able to do at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. If you’re ever in Pittsburgh, make sure you check it out. If you live in Pittsburgh, why aren’t you taking advantage of the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh?
