  • An old-style in-depth museum where three long corridor walls are lined with large, deep display cases fronted by divided glass panels and dozens of other display cases fill the galleries and halls. Take your time and examine the exceptional quality artifacts and historical references. From start to finish expect to spend at least an hour here. Anyone interested in American battles and wars should make this a must-see on their list of places to visit in Pittsburgh. Don't forget to stop into the Memorial Hall (auditorium) if only just to see it's grand size.
  • A wonderful tribute to those who've served this country. All within a beautiful and historic building. Reserve several hours to tour everything.
  • Very interesting historical collection. Large amounts of civil war knowledge especially. Leaves me feeling both in awe and conflicted regarding the time of African Americans in the civil war and the huge unacknowledged role slavery played in the building of the United States. More real history and a basic understanding on how much of our nation was built on the back breaking work of black people is needed.
  • I really enjoyed visiting, but have a serious peeve when it comes to spelling, so I was bothered by the misspelling of "Sailors" on the parking ticket. For an institution of higher education, that is unacceptable.
  • I've attended several events here and each one has been great. Pitt Stop Lindy Hop has its large swing dance event here every year at the top floor in the ballroom. Its superb! I have also delivered a wedding cake here and its just seems to be a great venue for many events!

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
