There are so many interesting and fun places to go with families and kids, and the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh is one the best. Though maybe more entertaining for the younger ones, the museum has a wide variety of hands-on exhibits which can be just as fun an older child as a 4-year-old.

There is an entire floor dedicated to the Waterplay area, where kids can play contests with their boats. They provide raincoat and boots, but you might want to take some clean clothes with you, in case they splatter themselves with water.

Address:
10 Children's Way, Pittsburgh, PA 15212, USA

Price:
Kids $10, adults $11

Opening Hours:
Daily: 10am-5pm (on Sun. from noon)
