    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 :)

    The best wedding i've ever attended:)

    From the beginning, we loved the 3D renderings of the venue before they were done with construction. We met the team from the Carnegie museums and they immediately gave us all the information and details we would need and more. They were immediate with responses with any questions that did arise during planning, they were helpful and they were truly so KIND to work with and respectful of our time as the bride and groom. The venue was BEAUTIFUL and we were so happy with the outdoor terrace for our guests to enjoy. Culinaire is the catering service used for the Carnegie museums and let me just say the food was PERFECT. I STRONGLY recommend anyone to consider this venue to host their wedding! Beautiful. Fun. Amazing views. Perfect. Thank you Carnegie Science Center!!

    After performing a few ceremonies that's the Science Center I realized what a unique and exciting venue this truly is.

  • Lokmer Photography Inc. Wedding Photographers

    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.
