If you are looking for the perfect presents for your friends
or family members who are moving to Pittsburgh, consider purchasing their
family a membership (or season pass) to one of the amazing attractions in the
area. Pittsburgh is home to several fantastic museums that families will visit repeatedly.
Memberships save money over time, but the benefits far outweigh the costs. The
memories families can make in each of these places will last a lifetime.
1. Carnegie Museums
Museums are actually four separate museums, but a membership to just one of
these museums gets you into all four! The museums in the Carnegie Museum of
Natural History, Carnegie Museum of Art, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the
Carnegie Science Center. With tons of exhibits and hands-on learning
opportunities, these museums are fun and educational.
2. Senator John Heinz
History and Sports Museum
This History Museum includes the Western Pennsylvania Sports
Museum, so a membership here does not mean just “learning about history.” With
over six floors, the Heinz History Center has something for everyone. It is
also home to the largest
collection of items from Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
3. Pittsburgh Zoo and
Close to downtown, the Pittsburgh Zoo is home to over 4000
animals as well as an aquarium. This well-loved area attraction offers various
membership levels, so you can purchase the one that is right for you. Plus, a
membership to this zoo gets you discounted or even free admission to other zoos
all across the country!
4. Idlewild and Soak
Named Best Park for
Families by National Amusement Park Historical Association, Idlewild is
also a great option for season passes – especially during the summer when the
Soak Zone opens.
