On your trip to Pittsburgh, just over the Allegheny River you’ll find the National Aviary, opposite the History Center. This is home to more than 600 species of exotic birdlife, ranging in size from Andean Condors to thumb-sized humming birds. The Aviary has a walk-through that makes it a great place for an afternoon’s educational stroll and lets you get closer to the birds than you would expect.
At the other extreme is the Andy Warhol Museum. The works of the immortaliser of Campbell’s Soup cans and Pittsburgh’s most famous son are preserved here in the world’s biggest collection of Warhol memorabilia.
"The Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History are home to fabulous dinosaur exhibits and much else besides, and is particularly great for kids of all ages thanks to its wide range of interactive exhibits."Another brilliant and innovative art experience can be had at the Mattress Factory, considered the best showcase for contemporary art in the States.
Pittsburgh is also a huge sports city and known for their black and gold colors. The Steelers of the NFL, Penguins of the NHL, and Pirates of MLB play in the city so be sure to check out a game when you’re in town.
