Also known as the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, and part of the Smithsonian Institution, this museum is jam-packed with fun activities. It is a great way to learn about the history of Pittsburgh and its important contributions to the world, in an interactive way.
This fascinating museum holds one of the largest dinosaur and mummy collections in all of America. In fact, as a kid, these were my two favorite areas of this very special museum! Not only is this a fun place to walk around, it also teaches them more about science and different world cultures within history.
Marked as a National Historic Landmark, this park has been around since 1898. It is one of the oldest parks and is home to one of the world’s oldest wooden roller coasters. Perfect for all ages, Kennywood Park has a Kiddie Land, sport-inspired rides, and even a 4D theater.
Kennywood's sister park, and even older than Kennywood is Idlewild Park founded in 1878, and its water park, the Soak Zone. This park is located in Ligonier, about an hour or so drive from Pittsburgh, in the Laurel Mountains. While this park is fun for older kids, it is actually perfect for the little ones.
