Features
Family-friendly

For a truly comprehensive story of Pittsburgh’s beginnings, industrial might, decline, and rebirth, head to the Heinz History Center. It’s located between the city’s downtown and Strip District sections, which is convenient for a pre- or post-lunch stop. It also houses the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum where you’ll find the stories—and some seriously cool memorabilia—of the Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, and other local athletic triumphs. Above all, the museum is kid-friendly and very attention-grabbing, with colorful placards, videos, and interactive exhibits.
