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...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...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...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,...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...More

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

I am short, 5" 1, and I still had to duck when inside of this Submarine from WWII. It shows how little space these men had to live in when working on the sub. Really Amazing. A must see for anyone interested in History.

This is a real submarine open to the public through the Science Center. The displays are clear, the spaces are tight and the sense of realism is palpable.

Agree with the other answers. We went on a rather rainy and cold weekend and while the museum was packed with kids there weren't many people onboard. In some area of the sub you can kind of tuck in to have a closer look at... More

The center is closed "for renovations related to the new PPG Science Pavilion", according to the website. It should be open on your last day, the 14th, though. You can walk by and see the sub fine from the walking path... More

It's free with admission to the Science Center. I am not sure you can buy admission to *only* the USS Requin.
