Which is the best science museum in Pittsburgh?
Posted On July 24, 2021
Pittsburgh, PA — Which is more inspiring?
In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Smithsonian Museum of Natural History curator and founder of the museum Peter Pritchard explained the answer to the question.
“My answer is that Pittsburgh is a city where it’s hard to find out what the world is going to look like in the next few decades,” he said.
“So it’s really important to know what’s going to happen in our lifetime.
So it’s very much about the future and what is happening in the world today, and the nature of the people that live there.
So, Pittsburgh is definitely a place where you can be really adventurous and get really close to the things that are happening.”
Pittsburgh is really a place of exploration.””
It’s very inspiring to be a part of it.
Pittsburgh is really a place of exploration.”
Pritchard added that his museum was originally established in 1910 as a place for science and education.
But as the population grew, the museum became more focused on exploration and scientific discovery, he said, and eventually moved into the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.
Pritchys new museum, which opened last year, features a collection of more than 2,000 fossils, including some of the most ancient known dinosaurs and other living organisms.
Pritches goal was to create a “big museum that’s the center of science in the city of Pittsburgh,” he explained.
The museum features a large collection of fossils, as well as many artifacts from the past, including ancient tools and artifacts.
Pritchies goal was for his museum to “be the center for science in Pittsburgh.”
“There’s a whole range of things that you can find in the museum, but that’s all part of what the museum is all about,” he told the paper.
A tour of the new museum is scheduled for May 20.
