Visitors to the museum enjoy the permanent exhibits, as well as temporary ones, such as fall 2012’s Tough Art, the museum’s sixth annual exhibition of interactive artwork that is tough enough to withstand kids at play. It encourages kids to play with enormous balls of yarn, compose music on a robotic percussion instrument, and send giant oil drums cascading by turning a hand wheel. Another visiting creation, Felipe Dulzaides’s Missing Links, also known as Rainbow Jumpy, lets children bounce, roll, run, and walk through a colorful, inflated 30-foot tunnel.

Admission for children aged 2–18 is regularly $12, and children younger than 2 are admitted for free.

Children's Museum of Pittsburgh

Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh delights children with hands-on learning and interactive exhibits that allow kids to interact with real stuff and do things they wouldn't normally do, such as hammer a nail, build a circuit, and ink a silkscreen. The museum welcomes nearly 250,000 visitors annually, encouraging them to explore its interactive permanent-exhibit areas, which include The Studio, Theater, Waterplay, Nursery, Backyard, and MAKESHOP.

MAKESHOP invites young minds and hands to tinker with sewing machines, woodworking, and electronics. Kids craft boats and build fountains in the nearby Waterplay exhibit, and in the Studio they form clay, paint portraits, and create paper from recycled-newspaper pulp. Infants, toddlers, and their families can play in the Nursery, where they build wooden train systems and then roll their trains around, comb colored sand with hand tools atop lighted tables, and ride a seesaw whose motion generates water bubbles.

The museum’s award-winning, three-story center building is screened by a shimmering wind sculpture and connects two historic structures—the Allegheny Post Office Building and the Buhl Building. In 2006, it became a certified green building and was honored by the American Institute of Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In 2011, the museum was named one of the 10 Best Children’s Museums in the nation by Parents magazine.
