- The was a nice walk between the 2 inclines. Houses along the way are pretty cool, and when we where there, a few very cool cars too!
There are 2 main viewpoints which are totally worth it, and a few informal ones that are nice too.
There's a bit hill, but its not long, so don't be scared by it.Written 11 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- PNC gives veterans like me the best value, I love taking my son and we sit in the Club Level. The best views of any ballpark, too. Always a 1st class time. Thank you Pirates and PNC for all you do for us.Written 12 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- My grandson who is turning 4 next week was so excited to ride the incline. He was disappointed when he discovered both penny press machines were broken. He loved seeing the lights of the city on our return trip.Written 11 November 2022
- We enjoyed walking the Strip District. The candy shop was worth the visit. There are lots of shops and places to eat. Definitely a lot of fun.Written 24 October 2022
- I was taken aback by how many bicycles the Haven has. There was so much to take in that I went back a second time before leaving town. The collection of bicycles is second to none I have ever seen before. The collection is fantastic in terms of diversity and the condition of the collection is amazing. It could be mildly overwhelming at first to take it all in. I slowed myself down and started to read the well-written information cards that are on various bikes reflecting their lineage. I went back a second time to take some pictures of the collection. This is when I had the opportunity to interact with the proprietor. He is FANTASTIC! He was busy but was more than willing to entertain my question and even bring insight into various bikes that piqued my interest. A true gentleman. On the next visit to the "Burgh", I for sure will make another trip to Bicycle Haven because I feel 2 trips are not enough to take it all in.Written 18 November 2022
- What a beautiful building inside and out. The original part of the building dates back to mid-1850 if my memory serves me right. It is the most impressive to me because of the construction material. I do not believe buildings nowadays could be built to this level of opulence. The exhibits within the building do not fall short by any means either. The collection is well laid out and beautifully maintained. There were school tours being conducted, but it did not at all hinder the experience because of the true professionalism of the museum staff. The entire staff within the museum is professional and extremely well-educated. So much to see, I will have to visit again when up in the "Burgh" next visit.Written 18 November 2022
- Hubby loves football. And the Steelers are one of his top teams. We booked this very cheap tour for fun and to see the stadium as it was summer and they were not playing. Wow, just wow! We were so impressed. Our guide had worked there for a very long time. He walked us all around, from lobby which has many very cool artefacts, to the back corridors, to the field. ONTO the field, which was amazing. Then up to see the field from a private lounge, and to the 2 lockerrooms.
I am not sure that everyone gets the same extended tour, but it was excellent. A great stop in the city.
Oh, and the gift shop is worth a stop. They have everything from classic jerseys, to Christmas decorations, to kitchen utensils, etc.Written 11 October 2022
- A great way to spend a Saturday morning, strolling through this museum. I was not a fan of Andy Warhol when i went into this but really enjoyed it. This is the largest museum in the world dedicated to one single artist. (7 floors) staff were great, there is a nice cafe in the lobby to grab a drink and snack. The museum is well spread out and not crowded.Written 26 October 2022
- Very interesting place for PA history! We had a great time here. Spent a good 2-3 hourswondering around the center. Entertaining for youg teens to adult. Young kids 6 and under my be a struggle. But it was great. Would recommend.Written 26 November 2022
- The museum is large but it does give a good insight into the history of the point. The grounds are well maintained and I felt more than safe even with the night strolls I took at various times, one at 2 AM. I have not had the opportunity to see the fountain in action yet but I am sure it is impressive!Written 18 November 2022
- Very nice zoo. They had hand dryers And escalators and they had elevators and they had an ATM machineWritten 14 November 2022
- The Cathedral of Learning is one of the most iconic buildings in all of Pittsburgh. It's a 42-stories high, gothic revival beautiful building. it's in the same university vicinity and the Carnegie Museum of Art and History is just nearby. it is 535 feet tall and listed as the world's second-tallest university building.
it also has a food court where visitors can grab a bite while exploring the impressive building's interior. We did not get much time to explore all but a few areas- though look stunning from the outside.Written 5 October 2022
- We found out about it by accident. It's not huge but a great experience -- most of the birds flying free around your head. Loved the penguin exhibit, don't miss the shows, and we paid extra for an animal encounter (feeding/petting a sloth) -- well worth it! Money goes to conservation efforts. They also have a nice cafe and gift shop.Written 4 November 2022
- After a 4 hour drive, our little one was ready to move! What a great layout. He loved the walking maze before we ever got in the door. Got to pretend to be an astronaut and watched a fun science show with frozen nitrogen. Some really cool stuff (no pun intended). The miniature train village was a big hit. Fortunately it was not crowded so he was able to make several trips around the village. Obviously as a toddler, he really enjoyed the noise machines! A fun few hours!Written 11 November 2022
