General Admission

Purchase your tickets for each museum


To help protect high-risk members of our community, the Heinz History Center and Fort Pitt Museum will designate every Thursday from 10 a.m. to Noon as special hours for visitors age 62 and older, visitors with disabilities, or those who are immunocompromised.  During these hours, the museums will focus on providing a comfortable experience for these vulnerable guests. The museums will open to the general public at Noon on Thursdays. While visitor services staff will not be checking IDs for age confirmation, we ask that other guests respect these dedicated hours.


In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and to thank all educators for their important work during a difficult year, the History Center and its family of museums will offer FREE admission for teachers during the month of May.  

All educators, including grades K-12 and college, with a valid teacher ID are eligible to receive free admission to the Heinz History Center, Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, Fort Pitt Museum, and Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village from May 1-31.
