Carnegie Science Center

The Carnegie Science Center offers four floors of fun for all ages - plus a building housing SportsWorks and a submarine docked in the river.

One reason we chose it is because it offers free general admission to members if the Indiana State Museum.

There is space exploration and rockets, robots, physics and weather phenomenon.

It's not as big as Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, but there is plenty of fun to be had.

Seldom Seen Coal Mine

Two hours east of Pittsburgh is former coal mine that is now used to share the occupation with tourists.

The Seldom Seen Coal Mine offers 45-minute tours that go into the mine. Imagine shoveling coal all day in the dark in a space only 40 inches tall.

There is a small museum and gift shop as well. Admission is $11 for adults and $6 for kids. Cash only.

The mine is open Sunday through Thursday. Check their web page for more information.
