Had a nice afternoon. Sports part was the best. Also liked the Heinz area. Price was decent. Spent 2-3 hours here. Would recommend it to anyone looking for something to do for a few hours, or especially if you're a big Pittsburgh sports fan.

Walked through town down to this museum and was pleasantly surprised on the diversity of exhibits involving Pittsburgh history. Go early as it closes most days at 5 pm.

This museum held some great history that we really enjoyed! The kids loved the trolley bus and the history on Heinz.

We visited mostly for the Heinz section but found much more then expected, they covered most sports teams, history of the city and more. The admission price was fair and taking the steps was worth the prize for people of all ages. Perfect for a...More
