  • 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.

  • August Wilson Center for African American Culture
    Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the August Wilson Center commands a striking architectural confidence. Its two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the bravado of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat. Within the steal and glass, a 486-seat theater hosts plays, dance performances, and lectures while multiple exhibition galleries display art and cultural treasures for the community. The center draws on the legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania, infusing each curation with a celebration of rich history.

  • Soldiers And Sailors Hall
    One of Pittsburgh’s well known landmarks, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum has stood as a testament to veterans from Western Pennsylvania for more than 100 years.

The museum includes the Hall of Valor, which honors local veterans who have gone above and beyond the call of duty while in action. The Gettysburg Room exhibit houses artifacts from the famous battle including objects that belonged to General Gouverneur K. Warren, known as the “Hero of Little Round Top”. Size: Big enough for exhibits on topics from military gear to the iconic "We Can Do It!" campaign, plus general-use rooms like the remarkable Grand Ballroom. Eye Catcher: The uniforms on exhibit, which documents the evolution of military uniform from the Civil War through modern operations in Iraq. Permanent Exhibit: Throughout the museum is miltary-themed art, which features mediums such as stained glass and oil paint.

  • Frick Art and Historical Center
    When Helen Clay Frick passed away in 1984, she left behind provisions for her childhood home, one of the few surviving buildings on Pittsburgh's fabled "Millionaire's Row," to be restored and opened to the public. Her family home from 1883-1905—named Clayton by Helen's industrialist and art collector father, Henry Clay Frick—is one of the only intact Gilded Age homes left standing in America. The 22 historic rooms were restored to circa 1900 conditions and visitors can view many art acquisitions along with some of the original household furnishings. Also on the 5.5-acre property, The Frick Art Museum hosts temporary exhibitions and displays a permanent collection with a focus on early-Renaissance Italian painting and 18th-century French painting and decorative arts. Size: 5.5 acres of land, the home of the Frick Art Center, the Car and Carriage Museum (temporarily closed for renovation), a Greenhouse, and Clayton Eye Catcher: if visitors are roaming the grounds, they'll probably be most impressed by the original house, a 22-room mansion purchased by the Fricks in 1882 and expanded in 1892 The Building: the Frick Art Museum opened in 1970, but many structures date back to the 1800s Permanent Mainstay: Henry Clay Frick began his collection of art, emphasizing landscapes, portraits, and Old Master paintings, with the purchase of Landscape with River by George Hetzel, which hangs in Clayton Don't Miss: Rolling Hills, Satanic Mills: The British Passion for Landscape–a new exhibition that just opened in The Frick Art Museum
