Art Museum
“This one is for fans of wild installation art. The most unique museum in Pittsburgh that tends to be overshadowed by the nearby Warhol museum (also great). There are permanent Yayoi Kusama and James Turrell pieces on hand, as well as killer rotating exhibitions. ”

History Museum
“Better than you might think! Has so much in their exhibits and collections, all of which are well done - from Mr. Rogers, Heinz, and Pittsburgh sports to history of Pittsburgh's African American, Jewish, and other communities. If you like exploring the history of this city, a great place to visit!”

History Museum
“The tour is self-guided, although there are knowledgeable employees available to answer questions. The tour provides a glimpse of the conditions on board, particularly the close quarters in which the sailors had to operate. Note how cramped the heads (toilets) and showers are. There's little room available for anything. The levers, knobs, and dials alone took up so much space! Tickets are $7 for the tour by itself, but it's included with the admission price of the science museum, which is right next door”
