Hunt for eggs at Carnegie Museum of Natural History  

Easter comes early this year and one of the most exciting places to be is the Annual Egg-cellent Hunt at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History on March 26th. From noon to 4 p.m. the museum will become a maze of fun where the first 600 children to the hunt will receive scavenger maps that lead to eggs and special treats. Designed for children ages 3 – 10, highlights will include live bunnies and baby chicks plus springtime-themed puppet shows by Pittsburgh Puppet Works.

Looking for other Easter events at Pittsburgh’s top spots for families? Try the Eggstravaganza event at the National Aviary where kids can join in a parade with the Easter Bunny, enjoy story time with a real bird and participate in a bird-themed egg hunt outside if weather permits. Families can Hop Into Spring at the Pittsburgh Zoo with a variety of springtime activities or ride an antique trolley car to an egg hunt with the Easter Bunny at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s Bunny Trolley. For older kids beyond the Easter Bunny, try Easter Egg Geocaching with Venture Outdoors.
