Help Build the Museum Lab Climber!

You can help us create Museum Lab, a place where youth 10 and older can work with makers to create everything from furniture to apps, experiment with cutting edge technology to create art and much more. 

A new three-story climber is currently being built in Museum Lab in the former Carnegie Library steel book stacks and featuring rope structures created by artist Mantzalin, woven using traditional bobbin lace techniques.  Click here to help build the Climber at any level.

Museum Lab will open in April 2019 in the former Carnegie Free Library of Allegheny, an historic building next door to the Children's Museum in Allegheny Commons. Learn more about the project here.
