  • Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum
    Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum celebrates one of the country's oldest transportation systems. It's no surprise then that the museum itself has moved from one location to another. It first opened in 1980, but soon outgrew its original space, and in 1998 took over a former PRR master mechanics building. Here, visitors immerse themselves in the rich history of the rail. Size: The museum's collection stretches over three floors of exhibits, plus a movie theater Eye Catcher: A replica of the K4-1361?known as the "official steam locomotive of Pennsylvania"?stands in the lobby. The original is slated for full restoration by museum staff. Permanent Mainstay: How to Run a Railroad, which features model trains and teaches visitors how difficult it was to keep a network of trains running smoothly in the era preceding satellite communications Don't Miss: Maintenance Division, which honors the workers who built and maintained the tracks, and dealt with disaster on the rails Hands-On Experiments: At Transportation Division, visitors can attempt to master the fast-paced skill of track switching to see first-hand why the brakeman's job was the most treacherous Pro Tip: Though snacks are available in the gift shop, there is no food service on site; visitors can, however, bring their own food and enjoy a picnic on the museum's grounds Special Programs: In the summer, the museum hosts live local bands in its [Alive@5 concert series]9http://www.railroadcity.com/alive5-concerts/) Leave Your Mark: If someone you know was a railroad worker, you can have them included in the museum's database, The Call Board.

  • Corks And Canvases
    At Corks and Canvases, local artists demonstrate how to paint vivid scenes while students sip their favorite wines. After passing out canvases and supplies, teachers guides attendees aged 15 and older stroke-by-stroke through the process of creating projects such as a Van Gogh–inspired starry night over Pittsburgh or a sailboat as it floats at sunset. At BYOB classes, they invite guests to uncork a vintage and nibble snacks brought from home. The studio also hosts bachelor or bachelorette parties, fundraising events, and family nights that let kids and their smartest stuffed animals paint alongside adults.

  • Frick Art and Historical Center
    When Helen Clay Frick passed away in 1984, she left behind one of America's most extensive collections of fine art and one of the few surviving buildings on Pittsburgh's fabled "Millionaire's Row." She also left behind a family legacy that played an integral role in shaping Pittsburgh as it exists today. So her family home?named Clayton by Helen's father Henry Clay Frick?now stands as a monument to a bygone age, both in its restoration to turn-of-the-century splendor and in its impressive displays of paintings and sculpture from the early-Renaissance on. Size: seven historical and educational buildings stud a 5.5-acre parcel of land, the home of the Frick Art Center, the Car and Carriage Museum, the Greenhouse, and Clayton itself Eye Catcher: if visitors are roaming the grounds, they'll probably be most impressed by the original house, an 11-room manse built in Italianate style The Building: the Frick Art Center opened in 1970, but most structures date back to the 1900s?their garage became the Car and Carriage Museum, their playhouse became an administrative office, and their greenhouse became the Greenhouse Permanent Mainstay: Henry Clay Frick began his collection of art, emphasizing early-Renaissance Sienese painting and 18th-century French painting, furniture, and decorative arts, with the purchase of George Hetzel's Landscape with River Don't Miss: the space affords plenty of space for lectures, workshops, and classical and contemporary music
