    The cafe has surprisingly great food. Red pepper Gouda soup (AMAZING) every Friday, wraps and paninis are delicious. Try the energy stir smoothie on your way out. Service is very friendly as well.

    We love this place. It's like a museum, but just a little smaller. Plenty of history of the area, sports memorabilia, and Pittsburgh Spirit!

    Give yourself at least an hour per floor and wear comfortable shoes. Everybody should visit here at least once but it's worth buying the membership!

    Throw a perfect pass or drive a motorboat at the Heinz History Center. The western PA sports museum honors Pittsburgh’s sports heritage in the largest history museum across Pennsylvania.

    Great exhibit on history of Pittsburgh, including video on "Pittsburghese", explaining some of my dad's weird language like "warsh the car" or "redd up your room"!

    Maz uni and bat. Mr Rogers and king Friday make this a worthy trip. If you like the Steelers it's a must. A tad pricey should be like ten bucks
