Bicycle Heaven
#1 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
One of the most unique museums I've ever visited!
He shared some of the history of the museum and augmented the excellent plaques describing the history and uniqueness of the 100 odd special bicycles on display Truly a very very special.
Carnegie Museum of Natural History
#2 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
One of America's great natural history museums, the Carnegie has wowed generations of explorers and curious minds from all over the world.
Enormous museum when combined with the art museum portion---allow sufficient time if you truly want to explore both museums fully.
Cathedral of Learning
#3 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
I suggest you combine your visit to the Cathedral of Learning with your visit to the Carnegie Museums of Natural History and Art, since they are across the street from one another on Forbes Ave. in the Oakland sec...
In fact a trip to the "Oakland Cultural Center, with it's museums, Schenley Park and even CMU is a most worthwhile one.
Senator John Heinz History Center
#4 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
We were amazed at the fantastic exhibits, which equal and often surpass those of the Smithsonian museums in Washington.
The Heinz History Center is among the best regional museums anywhere in the U.S. The exhibits are visually appealing, professionally prepared, and "user friendly" in their interpretation.
The Nationality Rooms
#5 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
Since the Carnegie Museums of Natural History and Art are right across Forbes Avenue from each other, I suggest a combined trip.
We had done theater, sports, laser tag, shopping, museums etc., so Oakland was the last destination.
Carnegie Museum of Art
#6 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
... art is made even more meaningful by its thoughtful display in spacious chronologically arranged room after room, which, in contrast to many larger museums, affords time & space for appreciation & contemplation.
If you're just visiting Pittsburgh, put aside at least a day for visiting the museums (art and natural history) - - and if you live here, make like a tourist, and find our how lucky you are to have this at your fi...
Carnegie Science Center
#7 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
Get the annual membership as it allows you access to the four Carneige museums - well worth the value.
I've been to several science museums around the Midwest and Carnegie science center is my favorite by far.
Duquesne Incline
#8 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
We have done all types of tours, museums, ships, and aquariums but this one is unique for sure.
Best time to go up is before sunset and come down after the sunsets to see the city lit up - this is great also for history buffs - small museum w self guided tour - it is close to 150 years old !
1 Way to experience it
Randyland
#9 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
We walked from the Children's museum and it is definitely worth the 10 minutes walking to see Randy's colorful vision and gift to the world!
Perfect visit to compliment Pittsburg's Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, which is walking distance away.
Children's Museum of Pittsburgh
#10 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
We've been to several explore and learn museums in the past few years and I can honestly say that this is the best one yet.
One of my favorite children's museums!
Frick Art and Historical Center
#11 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
If you are a fan of small gems of art museums, along the lines of the Isabella Stewart Garner Museum in Boston, you will appreciate the Frick.
Terrific house tour and nice Art and Car Museums
Andy Warhol Museum
#12 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
The museums have special artist events also and really bring so much love to art in our time with the inspiration of one of the most influential artist of the 20th century Andy Warhol!
The Warhol Museum is one of the most amazing art Museums and it is here in Pittsburgh.
Fort Pitt Museum
#13 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
Along with the well-stocked and informative museum, you can also visit the Blockhouse and walk the grounds where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers form the start of the Ohio River.
This museum gives a fascinating in-depth history of the early relations between the Native Americans, the French and the English.
Photo Antiquities Museum of Photographic History
#14 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
If visiting, you could definitely make an entire day all about the North Side with it's funky little museums, parks, arts, culture, and restaurants.

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum
#16 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
Perfect pocket museum and memorial
It is located within walking distance of many restaurants, the Univ. of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Museum.
The Clemente Museum
#17 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
BOTH museums are really worthy and I encourage you to partake!
It is truly a labor of love for owner Duane Rieder, who converted this old firehouse (which closed 12/31/72) from his photography studio into a marvelous museum honoring the life and legacy of Roberto Clemente , w...
Pittsburgh Glass Center Studios
#18 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh
The Society for Contemporary Craft
#19 of 38 Museums in Pittsburgh

Johnny Angel's Ginchy Stuff and Music Museum

Everything in the store and museum is his personal collection that he has amassed over the years...what a hobby that has turned into a treasure trove of musical history to be shared with everyone!
