The Carnegie Science Center opened in 1991.
With a history that dates to October 24, 1939, the Carnegie Science Center is the most visited Museum in Pittsburgh. Among its attractions are the newly constructed Buhl Digital Dome (which features the latest in projection), the Rangos Omnimax Theater, the Miniature Railroad & Village and the USS Requin (a World War II submarine).
It also includes Roboworld, touted as "the world's largest permanent robotics exhibit" with more than 30 interactive displays featuring "all things robotic". This area also includes the first physical home for Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Hall of Fame.
Under the leadership of Robert Wilburn, Buhl Science Center merged with the Carnegie Institute and a new $40 million Carnegie Science Center was constructed.
