My Kid’s Favorite Things at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

Art Room

Alex and Emily love the art room, which is directly on the left after the admissions desk.  Their permanent activity there is screen printing, which we do every time.  I would do that first since you can leave your artwork to dry and come back at the end to pick it up.  They usually have other art activities there as well.


Alex also loves their huge climbing wall, which winds up to the second floor.

Ball Drop

One of Emily’s favorite exhibits is the ball drop!
