Throw a perfect pass. Watch Bill Mazeroski hit a 1960 World Series winning home run. Play a hole at Oakmont. Drive a powerboat.
The Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum promises to "get you in the game" with more than 70 hands-on interactive exhibits, a two-story video theatre, and 20 audio-visual programs for visitors of all ages.
Children can ride a powerboat, compare their shoe size to shoes worn by Pittsburgh Steeler L.C. Greenwood, and make a perfect football throw to Lynn Swann and John Stallworth.
Adults can listen to legendary play-by-play broadcasts from Bob Prince and Rosey Rosewell, or try their hand at the museum's par 4 miniature golf hole with features found at the famed Oakmont Country Club, including mounds, depressions, and "church pew" sand bunkers.
Visitors will feel like "they were there" in the museum's two-story multimedia theater, where five screens show great moments in Western Pennsylvania sports, including Bill Mazeroski's 1960 World Series winning home run and the Penguins'Stanley Cup victories.
Serious sports fans can research hundreds of local sports greats in the Hall of Fame database or enjoy the autographs of dozens of stars on the Champions Wall, located on the third floor.
