Features
Family-friendly

Browsing the collections at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History is a great way to spend an afternoon or rainy day, especially with children in tow. The museum holds the city’s largest collection of scientific exhibitions about the natural world and human cultures. It offers regular weekend workshops and lectures that cover everything from dinosaur bones to the world that Darwin envisioned. In one afternoon, you can learn about mammoths, minerals, botany, and birds, and then drop in next door to the Carnegie Museum of Art to take in its sister museum’s paintings, sculptures, and exhibitions.
