About Heinz History Center
From the pre-revolutionary drama of the French and Indian War to the legendary Super Steelers duels, discover Pittsburgh's 250-year history at Heinz History Center. A branch of the Smithsonian, Heinz History Center is Pennsylvania's largest museum of history. The 275,000-square-foot museum - recently named Pittsburgh magazine's "Best Museum" - has six floors of long-term and volatile exhibit space, including the Western Pennsylvania Museum of Sports, a dynamic museum in the museum, and a 250-year long library and archives life of Western Pennsylvania. This center presents the most compelling stories from American history with Western Pennsylvania, all in an interactive environment, perfect for visitors of all ages! The Good Neighbor, Fred Rogers' first full-length biography, tells the story of this extremely unique and solid American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories and archival documents, Maxwell King traces Rogers' personal, professional and artistic life through decades of work, including the wonderful decision to leave the show to make adult television.
