21+ Night

6 – 10 pm

All those who have ever wanted to enjoy Carnegie Science Center without having to elbow 8-year-olds out of the way for a chance to compete against the Air Hockeybot or launch a rocket into the air, will not want to miss 21+ Night at Carnegie Science Center.

Highmark SportsWorks® and the USS Requin Submarine will not be open for the evening.

21+ Holiday Party

Dec. 18, 2015

Join us for our annual 21+ Holiday Party! This year we're celebrating our newest model on the Model Railroad & Village® , the Crawford Grill. Opened in the Hill District in 1930, the Crawford Grill became a renowned jazz club. So deck yourself out in your 1930s Sunday best as we celebrate the holiday season with jazz, dancing, and drinks!

We're turning the Works Theater into a dance club. Pittsburgh Dance Center will provide introductory dance lessons to 30s and 40s-era dances. Learn basic steps to swing, foxtrot, or Charleston, then put your moves to work in the fun atmosphere of the Works Theater.

Enjoy live jazz music in the Robot Lounge from local group "Jazz Conspiracy."

Participate in hands-on holiday themed science fun!

  • Make fake snow.
  • Test pH using an indicator made from poinsettias.
  • Play with circuits and discover why when one bulb goes out they all go out.
  • See and measure the difference between incandescent and LED Christmas lights.

Envision yourself into the historic Crawford Grill using our green screen.

Admission cost is just $10 for tickets purchased by Noon the day of the event or $15 if purchased at the door.
