My union convention held a reception here last night. Guests enjoyed delish finger food as we marveled at the exhibits. I loved the vintage pickle truck and lifelike Revolutionary War soldier mannequins. The gift shop is fun with quirky Heinz ketchup and mustard inspired doodads.

For those of us old enough to remember Mr. Rogers, you need to see this museum. The set from the TV show is here, and there is so many old dolls, costumes, vintage clothing & cars to see. If you like peeking into the past...More

We visited during Fourth of July vacation and were impressed at the varying exhibits from local sports memorabilia to the Heinz exhibit, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and the slavery exhibit. There is so much to see and learn!

If you don't have a special affiliation to Pittsburgh, two hours might be enough. I spent two hours but would have spent more time if I had it. As others advised, it will depend on your level of interest.
