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.

This eclectic museum covers so much of Pittsburgh history - including that of Senator Heinz as well as all varieties of professional sports. We had some private time due to attending an evening reception; however, I would likely return during normal hours as well.

At least 2 but you could easily spend up to 5 browsing the exhibits. If you are coming for an event like Italian Day or other special days I would expect to spend at least 3hours.
