Whether you are a regular visitor or have never been, there is a lot for you to discover at the Senator John Heinz History Center!
Devoted to the history and heritage of Western Pennsylvania, the History Center is Pennsylvania’s largest history museum and a proud affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. The 370,000 square-foot museum presents compelling stories from American history with a Western Pennsylvania connection in an interactive environment perfect for visitors of all ages. Learn about the museum's rich collection and ongoing exhibits, including newest exhibition: Pittsburgh’s John Kane: The Life & Art of an American Workman. This exhibit features 37 original works of art and dozens of artifacts that showcase the world of John Kane – a turn-of-the-century Scottish immigrant who achieved breakthrough success as a painter after toiling for more than 40 years as a laborer in industrial-age Pittsburgh.
