Carnegie Science Center to close on Tuesdays

Paul Guggenheimer

The Carnegie Science Center on Pittsburgh’s North Shore is reducing its hours of operation.

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 3, the Science Center will be closed to the public every Tuesday through the last Tuesday in April, except for December 31 and April 7. The Science Center will continue to be open seven days a week during the summer.

Two of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are also closed on Tuesdays except from Memorial Day to Labor Day. In addition, the Andy Warhol Museum is closed on Mondays, making the Carnegie Science Center’s hours of adjustment more in line with its family of museums.

“Like many visitor attractions, including our sister Carnegie Museums, we’ll use this one day a week to repair and maintain exhibits, attend to general facility upkeep, and conduct staff trainings and other staff development programs,” says Interim Director Jason Brown. “It will make the visitor experience even better.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
