  • I was not impressed with this museum at all! First, there was about 30 people in my group, that’s 25 too many. Only 5 people can really be able to fully enjoy it. If you were last in line you couldn’t...  more »

  • We had an outstanding time. The collection of Clemente memorabilia was complemented with some other Pirate material, but best of all were the stories of the family and friends of Clemente who have come to the museum and shared their memories. Planning to go back soon with my extended family. 👍🏻
  • Amazing memorabilia and informative tour. Highly recommended for any baseball fan or anyone interested in Roberto Clemente.
  • This is a real hidden treasure. The tour is very informative and entertaining. The collection of artifacts and memorabilia is really impressive. Anyone who is a fan of the Pirates, Clemente or baseball in general really should try to find a way to fit this in during a visit to Pittsburgh.
  • The last time I visited Pittsburgh was August 1972 for a Pirate's vs Dodger's game at Three Rivers. I saw my hero Roberto Clemente make one of his famous throws of which I remember like yesterday. This weekend I was blessed to return to Pittsburgh for the first time since August 1972 and watch my son pitch at PNC for the Reds against Pirates. I had to visit the museum and booked a visit. Duane did an absolutely wonderful job of telling and explaining Clemente's life and accomplishments both on the field and off. I think not only all baseball fans but all people should visit this museum. This may be the greatest example I have ever seen that proves athletic ability and talent are temporary but attitude and character go on forever. We are all blessed to have either seen or later read and heard about Roberto. Thanks to Duane and the Clemente family, Roberto's life and character will live on forever. Please make an appointment and visit.
  • Old Fire House with classic atmosphere, Nostalgic, displays took me back to my childhood

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.
