The Carnegie Science Center is the most visited museum in Pittsburgh. It has four floors of interactive exhibits. Among its attractions are the Buhl Planetarium, Rangos Omnimax Theater, SportsWorks, the Miniature Railroad & Village, the USS Requin (a World War II submarine) and Roboworld, touted as "the world's largest permanent robotics exhibition." The Roboworld exhibition contains more than 30 interactive displays featuring "all things robotic", and is also the first physical home for Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Hall of Fame. The Miniature Railroad & Village (MRRV) is one of the largest and most detailed model train layouts in the United States. It depicts Western Pennsylvania from 1880 to 1930 (with some artistic license).
