My union convention held a reception here last night. Guests enjoyed delish finger food as we marveled at the exhibits. I loved the vintage pickle truck and lifelike Revolutionary War soldier mannequins. The gift shop is fun with quirky Heinz ketchup and mustard inspired doodads.

We visited during Fourth of July vacation and were impressed at the varying exhibits from local sports memorabilia to the Heinz exhibit, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and the slavery exhibit. There is so much to see and learn!

We enjoyed the museum. It had a lot more than we expected and it was great place to spend a few hours to learn more about Pittsburgh.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Heinz History Center. The special exhibit on prohibition was fun. I also particularly appreciated the exhibit on slavery and on Mr. Rogers.

6 floors of interesting exhibits, some are please touch for little kids. There’s a fun slide for the kids to go on. Also a trolley you can go on and sit in the drivers seat.

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.
