Some places in Pittsburgh that are fun for families are the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium and the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. Both places offer specialty programs for young children.
The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium offers six different areas for the family to enjoy, including the Tropical Forest, African Savanna, PPG Aquarium, Kid's Kingdom and others. At the Kid's Kingdom, families enjoy the chance to visit the petting zoo with animals native to the area.
The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh provides a variety of exhibits where children have fun learning about the world around them, and some of the exhibits encourage hands-on learning. The museum has temporary and permanent exhibits.
