This is included with the Carnegie Science Center admission. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a really cool walk through tour of the submarine. It has rooms closed off showing typical items to be found in the submarine and it also has a pathway to the back of the submarine. There are very steep stairs to get... More

By buying admission to the Science Center, you can explore the workings of a submarine. This is a wonderful opportunity to take a tour of a underwater vehicle for adults and children. This may be the only time you get to explore a submarine. Wear good walking shoes as the floors can be slippery.

Need a taste of the military life, then visit the USS Requin. Everything is done well with attention to details. It was very informative for a non military person.

Great exhibit, the self guided tour was excellent. We stopped and chatted to a member of the museum staff located in the front torpedo bay, he was extremely knowledgable and really knew the history and the operation of the Sub. We didn't go into the main museum as it seemed to be more child orientated, I would recommend a visit... More

The self-guiding tour includes several interactive screens, allowing people to choose topics of interest for more detailed information. These included trivia and stories as well as dry facts - something for everyone. It is also nice that you could sit at the dining tables and walk into a berth. I found it interesting that the main walkway was effectively low-ceilinged... More

This is one of my favorite exhibits. The ship is located adjacent to the Carnegie Science Center, but you can access it without buying museum tickets if you don't want to see the Science Center. The tour is mostly self-guided and takes you from bow to stern aboard a late WW2 era submarine. The passageways are rather narrow, but I'm... More

I had no desire to do the main Science Center, as there were tons of children in those exhibits (which is great--they need to do quality learning activities), but came specifically for the submarine and the IMAX movie. You can purchase these two attractions separately, and you don't need a reservation for the sub--which is nice, you don't have to... More

We took our grandson (aged 8) on this submarine and he loved it! It was pretty tight quarters for us adults but he thought it was the best thing ever!!

I was biking the city of Pittsburgh with a friend when we came upon the USS Requin near the Science Center. I'm a huge military history buff so just had to stop. The USS Requin provides a great walk-thru of a late World War 2 and Cold War era submarine. It is surprisingly spacious if you have ever been on... More

This well-taken care of naval history was excellent to walk through, read about, and learn from the staff about.
