Sprawling contemporary art museum features permanent collections of paintings, sculptures & more.
This museum takes ALL day pretty much. It is enormous, and totally worth the time and money. This museum has an impressive range of art/history and is a great daytime activity for anyone who appreciates that sort of thing. I know I do!

Among its attractions are the Buhl Planetarium (which features the latest in digital projection technology), the Rangos Omnimax Theater (promoted as "the biggest screen in Pittsburgh"), SportsWorks, the Miniature Railroad & Village, the USS Requin (a World War II submarine) and Roboworld, touted as "the world's largest permanent robotics exhibition." The Roboworld exhibition contains more than 30 interactive displays featuring "all things robotic", and is also the first physical home for Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Hall of Fame. It is closed on Sundays when there is a Steelers home game.”
