  • Children's Museum of Pittsburgh
    Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh delights children with hands-on learning and interactive exhibits that allow kids to interact with real stuff and do things they wouldn't normally do, such as hammer a nail, build a circuit, and ink a silkscreen. The museum welcomes nearly 250,000 visitors annually, encouraging them to explore its interactive permanent-exhibit areas, which include The Studio, Theater, Waterplay, Nursery, Backyard, and MAKESHOP. MAKESHOP invites young minds and hands to tinker with sewing machines, woodworking, and electronics. Kids craft boats and build fountains in the nearby Waterplay exhibit, and in the Studio they form clay, paint portraits, and create paper from recycled-newspaper pulp. Infants, toddlers, and their families can play in the Nursery, where they build wooden train systems and then roll their trains around, comb colored sand with hand tools atop lighted tables, and ride a seesaw whose motion generates water bubbles. The museum’s award-winning, three-story center building is screened by a shimmering wind sculpture and connects two historic structures—the Allegheny post office building and the Buhl Building. In 2006, it became a certified green building and was honored by the American Institute of Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In 2011, the museum was named one of the 10 Best Children’s Museums in the nation by Parents magazine.

  • 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
