Heinz History Center is a great place to learn about Pittsburgh, from it's early beginnings as thr "Forks of the Ohio" to today. The sports history here is second to none and is presented very beautifully here. Another must see for a newcomer to Pittsburgh....More

I spent two hours viewing the first and second floors, and felt I had rushed it. It was better than I had expected. My son and I agreed to visit again and work our way towards the sixth floor. I can't wait!

There was information about the Heinz company, collections and partial collections of historical trivia, but the best part was the extensive sports exhibits ranging from marbles, fox hunting, to baseball and football. There is even a goal post from the demolished 3 Rivers Stadium outside.

Enjoyed the presenters and the exhibits. Did not get to tour the baseball exhibit due to time restriction but it looks great.

Beautiful building that houses excellent exhibits on the history of Pittsburgh. Artifacts . . . Conestoga wagon, aluminum car etc. Enjoyed learning about all of the things that were invented or developed in Pittsburgh.

If you don't have a special affiliation to Pittsburgh, two hours might be enough. I spent two hours but would have spent more time if I had it. As others advised, it will depend on your level of interest.
