Make your next event truly historic at the History Center.

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful setting for a wedding, need an off-site conference location, or you’re celebrating a birthday or corporate milestone, the History Center is the ideal place to create your own history.

As Pennsylvania’s largest history museum and the region’s oldest cultural institution, the History Center is dedicated to preserving and celebrating major events – not just the many ways Pittsburgh has shaped the world, but your own personal histories as well. Your weddings, birthdays, and company anniversaries are all part of the fabric of what makes Pittsburgh an extraordinary city.

The History Center’s non-traditional atmosphere, central location, exciting exhibitions, professional staff, team commitment to customer service, competitive rental rates, and extraordinary food and beverage service provided by Common Plea Catering are just some of the reasons to consider the History Center for your next meeting or event. (See the Common Plea catering menu.)

All facility rental revenue directly benefits the History Center, its exhibitions and programs, and the preservation of our collections for future generations.
