My husband and I love the Heinz History Museum. The changing exhibits are wonderful. There is everything Pittsburgh, Sports and Mr. Roger's Neighborhood to explorers and entrepreneurs. Not to be missed the next time you are going to the Strip.

Great background on the history of the city of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. They have lots of things that will take you back if your from the area. You wont be disappointed!

We arrived later in the day than intended and only had 2 hours before the museum closed, which we also expected to be enough time. Absolutely not! It’s so interesting and well designed that you wander the exhibits and don’t realize how long you’re there....More

I had no idea how much Pittsburgh contributed to the 20th century, until I let this Smithsonian-associated museum walk me through it.

My boyfriend and I decided to do a Pittsburgh day trip, from Michigan. After doing the Saturday farmers market, and going to Primanti Bros, we went to the Heinz Museum tour. There were lots to see here. The layout was a bit all over the...More

My husband and I enjoyed the museum very much. It took us about 3 hours to walk through all the exhibits and for $16 pp this was well worth the visit!

As a native of Eastern PA, it was a great place to learn about the other side of my state. I especially enjoyed the sports areas, and the Heinz 57 exhibit. Six floors of history is a lot to take in and it is not...More

At least 2 but you could easily spend up to 5 browsing the exhibits. If you are coming for an event like Italian Day or other special days I would expect to spend at least 3hours.
