Check Out The Heinz History Center

One of the greatest things about living at The Cork Factory is the vibrant and culturally diverse area that surrounds the community. There are several attractions and restaurants just minutes away from your doorstep.

If you're looking for a fun, interesting way to spend a few hours in the Strip District, head to the Heinz History Center. This six-story museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution and is the best place to learn all about the history of Western Pennsylvania.

The museum offers both static exhibits and featured displays, so there is always something new. The best part is that the exhibits focus on the history of Pennsylvania and how integral it was throughout our nation's past, from the state's war efforts to local innovations.

Sports fans will be happy to hear that two floors are dedicated to the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum where enthusiasts can learn all about the unique backgrounds of their favorite local teams.

According to Discover The Burgh,** two of the museum's must-see displays feature Pittsburgh's largest companies, PPG and Heinz. The PPG exhibit focuses on glass and how it is made. The Heinz showcase highlights the history of America's favorite condiment.

A great tip to save money and to double your fun is to visit the Fort Pitt Museum in Point State Park before visiting the Heinz History Center. By showing your same-day ticket from the Fort Pitt Museum, you will receive half off admission at the Heinz History Center.
