Heinz History Center and Fort Pitt Museum offering free admission for kids
This fall, both the Senator John Heinz History Center and the Fort Pitt Museum are offering free admission for anyone age 17 and under. The promotion lasts through Nov. 30.
The History Center, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute, features six floors worth of exhibits celebrating Western Pennsylvania history. Among them are Discovery Place, the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood exhibit, and the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum.
Fort Pitt Museum is located at the spot where a fort was built in 1758 during the French and Indian War. Today, the museum chronicles major wars and battles that took place in the Pittsburgh area during the 18th and 19th century, including the American Revolution.
Adult visitors pay regular rates — $20 at the History Center and $10 at the Fort Pitt Museum.
