    A Night to Remember

    While looking for a venue, my now husband and I wanted somewhere close to downtown with beautiful views, and paired well with our nerdy side. After visiting the Science Center for a tour of the space we knew immediately this was where we wanted our reception to be held. The entire staff and team we coordinated with was so professional, helpful and easy to work with that we fully were able to enjoy the entire evening! The ability to have catering included was a huge bonus for us, as well and not needing to looking into bartenders and other staff. We had such a wonderful night and highly recommend checking out Point View Hall for a larger space!

    Great experience

    You can't go wrong in choosing the Science Center as a venue. The service, responsiveness, and all of the coordinating on the wedding day were flawless. The view of PointView Hall is an obvious highlight as well :)

Our studio photographed a number of jobs at The Carnegie Science Center and our staff and our customers were very pleased with the whole aspect of the beautiful atmosphere. There are a number of extensive spaces in The Science Center including The Riverside Lawn, The Cafe Terrace, The Riverview Cafe and of course the spacious main lobby. The spectacular views of the rivers, the city of Pittsburgh and Mt. Washington all make for a stunning viewpoint and great environment. The first-rate dinners and surroundings all made for a lively and well remembered day. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
