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 an expensive admission and less for seniors and AAA. Parking is a half a block away. The neighborhood collection has the Mister Rogers exhibit as you enter the area. Other areas to see are the glass making, the slavery to Freedom is worth your time as is the innovation section dealing with Pittsburgh's many contributions and firsts. I liked the Lewis and Clark timeline as well.

Mr. Rogers set and Heinz 57 and local sports history are some really great exhibits. It's a great way to know the history of the area. Small fee parking across the street. Good price on entrance fee.

Great museum featuring the region’s history. Includes immigrants, Sports, business and more. It even has one of the old trolley cars that provided public transportation. Very, very interesting and worth a visit.
