MuseumLab – Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

MuseumLab inspires immersive learning in kids 10+ by offering cutting-edge studios, maker labs, and gallery spaces that encourage experiences in art, tech, and making. Formerly home to the Carnegie Library, the historic building closed in 2006 after being struck by lightning. The rehabilitation blends old and new to honor the building’s history and highlight its original 1890 archways while welcoming the future of learning. Langan provided site/civil, geotechnical, and traffic engineering services for the project, which achieved LEED Gold v4 Certification and exceeded Architecture 2030 goals.
